The Stone and Plank is an art gallery and poetry center located outside Providence, Rhode Island in the United States. It’s managed by Curt Stump, a professional writer, artist, and poet.
The blog section of the site is updated daily with posts on “art, writing, and life.” You’ll find surprisingly good quality poetry and poetry essays on the blog. You’ll also find features on artists who are showing their work in the gallery (generally high-caliber artists who have not yet made it big). There are also posts on what it is like to renovate and live in an old stone house.
This is a high-quality blog site that many people find thought-provoking, genuine, and engaging. It’s a great place to read poetry, explore some contemporary art, or simply read about how an artist and poet thinks. If you are short on time but big on ideas, there is also a section called “koans and lines” – for those who are curious and contemplative.
