Eric Woods is Owner and Founder of The Firecracker Press at 2838 Cherokee Street.  He's a visual artist, not a poet.  But he's been teaming up with poets for most of the nine years he's been open, mostly, he says "out of necessity."

"Traces of Time and Presence" features the work of this year's artists-in-residence at Craft Alliance in Grand Center: Erin Vigneau Dimick in fibers, Tom Dykas in clay and Michael Parrett in metals. It's a quiet show, with works in different media that hang well together, forging subtle thematic and formal connections.
