We're excited to welcome 2020 with two outstanding featured artists: Poet Oliver De La Paz and artist Gina Phillips who'll be visiting from New Orleans. We look forward to seeing you in the new year and hearing your work! Please help spread the word about Unearthed - a space that welcomes all people and ages.
Oliver de la Paz is the author of five collections of poetry, Names Above Houses, Furious Lullaby (SIU Press 2001, 2007), and Requiem for the Orchard (U. of Akron Press 2010), winner of the Akron Prize for poetry chosen by Martìn Espada, Post Subject: A Fable (U. of Akron Press 2014), and the forthcoming book The Boy in the Labyrinth (U. of Akron Press 2019). He is the co-editor with Stacey Lynn Brown of A Face to Meet the Faces: An Anthology of Contemporary Persona Poetry (U. of Akron Press 2012). He co-chairs the advisory board of Kundiman, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of Asian American Poetry and is a former member of the Board of Trustees for the Association of Writers and Writing Programs.
A recipient of a NYFA Fellowship Award and a GAP Grant from Artist Trust, his work has appeared in journals like Virginia Quarterly Review, North American Review, Tin House, Poetry, and in anthologies such as Asian American Poetry: The Next Generation. He teaches at the College of the Holy Cross and in the Low-Residency MFA Program at Pacific Lutheran University.
Gina Phillips is an artist and songwriter who grew up in Kentucky and has lived in New Orleans since 1995. The imagery, stories and characters of both regions influence her work. Phillips’ work is characterized by a raw, narrative quality. The most common narrative characteristic that runs through her work is tragicomedy. In 2004, Phillips bought a house in the Lower Ninth Ward neighborhood in New Orleans. One year later, her house was seriously damaged by Hurricane Katrina, forcing a year long absence from New Orleans and a subsequent 2 year rebuilding process. Following this catastrophic event, her work underwent an epochal shift as she more closely explored time, place and geography.
