Upcoming Exhibit

 


Poetry and Art

September 22 - October 15, 2017

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

Submissions due by May 10, 2017

 

 

 

We are continuing the process of ekphrasis - writing inspired by 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.

The Call to Artists and Call for Poets is open with entries due by May 10, 2017 (please read each call for details). Forty pieces of art will be selected by the jury for this exhibit. Poets from a wide variety of organizations will be invited to submit poems to be reviewed by a jury. Each chosen poet will create a poem in response to one of the selected pieces of artwork. Artwork and poems will be displayed side by side 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 and related events will take place during and around the time of the exhibit.

We look forward to your participation in this exciting show!
