WESTERN MASS. RLC, 74 Federal St., Greenfield. 772-0715, www.westrnmassrlc.org. “The Linens Project,” Laura Gail Grohe. Grohe is a poet with a passion for language and history. In “the Linens Project,” she literally stitches those passions together by embroidering her poems on antique linens, such as table runners, napkins and baby clothes. These compelling works are sometimes lyrical, like the love poem stitched on a table runner and sometimes challenging, like the poem about abuse embroidered on a baby’s nightgown. She collects her linens from junk stores and tag sales, finding it hard to leave behind a place mat or a handkerchief that has embroidery or handmade lace but is being sold for a dollar. Opening reception and poetry reading March 7, 6 to 9 p.m. March 7 through June 7. PR
