Please join City Books this Saturday night, August 31st from 7:00-9:00 pm for the opening of KISMET, a new exhibit curated by Jennifer Quinio. (Refreshments will be served.)
KISMET exemplifies the delight and surprise that happens when people encounter someone or something by chance that seems like it was meant to be. Inspired by the Arabic word for “destiny,” KISMET demonstrates how, when people take the time to ask questions of and listen to the world around them, they learn that, regardless of circumstance, everyone and everything has a story to tell—and a unique perspective from which to tell it. It is only with curiosity and empathy that we can create the perfect alignment for something passionate and positive to happen–something that we label “kismet,” but what might really be within our reach all the time.
Featured artists included Rick Claraval, Susan Constance, Dafna Hanauer, Patrick Schmidt, Carolyn Wenning, Sam Whitney.
The exhibition will continue through October 26, 2019 and be on view during City Books’s regular business hours, Tuesday-Friday 11:00 am-6:00 pm, Saturday & Sunday 12:00-5:00 pm. However, the bookstore will be closed October 15-18 for a brief fall escape, but will remain open on all October weekends.
