Poetry of Jane Rohrer - Acquiring Land

September 23, 2020

Acquiring Land, Jane Rohrer's second published volume of poems, appears as #17 in the Dreamseeker Poetry series of Cascadia Press. Edited and with an introduction by poet Julia Spicher Kasdorf, these eighteen poems are culled from a life lived with an artist' sensibility in the company of artists. Pushing back against the hypocrisy that piety and provincialism often exact, the poems are reports from a keen and conscious sensibility steeped in both modernist poetics and the writer's love of land, place, and a rigorous honesty to inner landscapes.

The book is available from major online outlets or your local bookstore.

Jane Rohrer was the wife of the late Warren Rohrer, an acclaimed color field painter. A catalog of his work, Field Language, has just been published by Penn State Press, to accompany several upcoming exhibitions:

"Field Language: The Painting and Poetry of Warren and Jane Rohrer" at the Palmer Museum of Art at Penn State, opening in January 2021.


"Hearing the Brush," a complementary exhibit at the Woodmere Art Museum in Philadelphia, most likely in January 2021.
