In Walter B. Thompson’s “Love Song,” a country singer hits on the inspiration for his break-out song - but the tune is always one swig of whiskey away. Mariko Nagai’s “Imports, Japan: Women, 1887-1908” investigates the diaries and archival records of Japanese women sold as sex workers in the Pacific Northwest. Austen Leah Rosenfeld gives us a dramatic monologue by Meriweather Lewis. And Myriam Dion’s art explores the line between medium and message, disposable and displayable, by transforming newsprint into fragile embroidery. All this, plus: Peter Balakian, Kathleen Hellen, Philip Holden, A. Nicole Kelly, Brandon Kreig, Doug Ramspeck, and more.
