Art in the A.M.
A Performance of
Songs, Stories & Visual Art
Art in the A.M. is a monthly performance featuring visual artists, RBWG writers, and songs by musician Stuart Vining.
The works of art displayed on this page (scroll down) serve as the writing prompts instead of a theme or a song, as we typically use at “Night of Songs and Stories.”
Think of the event as a "three-act play," with each act consisting of 2–3 writers reading work inspired by the artwork; the artwork display along with the artist discussing the work; and a musical performance inspired by the artwork.

Sponsoring Art in the A.M.
Event sponsorships are $250 and cover the Guild’s out-of-pocket costs for space rent, sound, and music. In return for the sponsorship, we will put a blurb in our weekly email (sent to more than 700 people), on our website, and on the program the day of the event naming the sponsor as well as what or who they are honoring. At the reading, Maribeth will publicly thank the sponsor.
Coffee Sponorships—Local coffee shops charge $25 for a bulk container of coffee and include milk, cream, cups, and lids. We anticipate needing four containers for each event. You are invited to sponsor one, two, three, or all four containers for the event.
Food Sponsorships—We are also looking for sponsors to bring a tray of small goodies/fruit to nibble.
We will publicly thank our coffee and food sponsors at the event and on our signage.
We still have the orange bucket at Art in the A.M. and ask sponsors to cover the fee at the door for themselves and guests as usual. While we do everything we can to accommodate the sponsor and make them not only feel special but also know how grateful we are, we don’t change the reading or the actual show beyond giving the sponsors who are Guild members the opportunity to read at that event and the opportunity to go either first or last in the line-up. Sponsors still need to RSVP for guests and if the event is full, we’ll move those guests to the top of the waitlist, but can’t promise a seat, so it is best to let Maribeth know about your plan to sponsor as far in advance as possible.
Contact Maribeth at email@example.com to sponsor an Art in the A.M. event, coffee, or food service.
Painting is the most beautiful of all arts. In it all sensations are condensed, and contemplating it, everyone can create a story at the will of the imagination–Paul Gauguin
