Current Exhibit

 


Poetry and Art

September 22 - October 15, 2017

Reception:
Friday, September 22, 6:30-8:30pm

 

 

 

 

Wickford Art Association is continuing the process of ekphrasis - writing inspired by art in the 5th Annual Poetry & Art. An ekphrastic poem is a vivid description of a scene or, more commonly, a work of art. This exhibit will showcase 40 works of art and 40 original poems inspired by those works of art. A limited edition book cataloging the exhibit will be published and available for sale.

Forty pieces of fine art were selected by juror Cindy Wilson for this exhibit. Poets from a wide variety of organizations were invited to submit poems to be reviewed by juror Kim Baker. Each accepted poet created an original poem in response to the assigned piece of artwork. Fine art and poems will be displayed side by side in the gallery during the exhibit. 

Poets and artists will not meet until just prior to the opening, heightening the excitement for this annual exhibit at the Wickford Art Association. Poetry readings will take place during the opening reception on Friday September 22, 2017 as well. The opening reception is free and open to the public. We look forward to seeing you!
