Friday's betterArts gallery show featured the work of two artists-in-residence, photographer Stevie Rosenfeld and poet Judah Levenson. 

Stevie Rosenfeld had a slideshow of her images on display, some of which included haigas (photographs with short poems). She used her betterArts residency to compose a series of works exploring as dense of self-discovery through images of nature and self-portraits:

Judah Levenson shared poems from a full-length book-in-progress, as well as a short play he wrote to be aired on Better Radio WBTS 88.5 FM and online in a podcast. "There Are Worse Ways to Go" was read aloud by Better Farm residents and visitors. Stay tuned for the airing of that play via podcast and broadcast!

Here are some photos of the event (all images by William Wells):
