7th Annual Poetry & Art

Wickford Art Association is continuing the process of ekphrasis - writing inspired by art - in the 7th 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. For this exhibit, forty pieces of fine art will be selected by juror Berge Zobian of Gallery Z. Deadline to submit art and poetry is April 15, 2019.
Artists may submit up to 3 pieces of artwork with the theme of "Harmony". Juror Berge Zobian will select 40 piece of fine art which will then be assigned to accepted poets.
Poets are invited to submit poems. Submitted poems are a poet's "portfolio, which will be juried. Accepted poets will be asked to create a new, original poem inspired by your assigned piece of artwork. Fine art and original poetry will be displayed side by side in the gallery during the exhibit.
A limited-edition, full color, professionally designed book cataloging the exhibit will be published. Thrilling news is that the 6 previous Poetry & Art books (2013 to 2017) have been accepted into The Poets House library in New York City, one of the premiere poetry libraries in the country. The 2019 book will be a part of their library collection as well and will be on special display at the Poets House in the fall.

Poets and artists will not meet until just prior to the opening, heightening the excitement for this annual exhibit at the Wickford Art Association. All poems will be read during the opening reception on Friday, September 13, 2019 with artwork digitally displayed under the tent located by Narragansett Bay. The opening reception is free and open to the public. We look forward to seeing you!

Journeys Onward

Veteran Films

Wickford Art Association will be screening 4 movies based on the veteran experience in May and June. Movies are free and open to the public. Please click here to learn more.

Art in the Face of War, May 23rd

Journeys Onward:
May 17 to June 16, 2019

Opening Reception:
Sunday, May 19th, from 1 PM to 3 PM

Jurors:
Alicia Dietz is a sculptor, furniture maker and mixed media artist, and U.S. Army veteran Blackhawk (UH-60) pilot and company commander who served in Iraq and worldwide. In this short video, she describes her motivation in creating one for her important wood sculptures, “Fallen Soldiers”.

Paul Bouchard is a sculptor and painter, and U.S. Navy veteran who served aboard the destroyer USS Ramsey in the Western Pacific during the Vietnam War. In this short video, he relates an intense five-day naval experience in 1968, and how he and his art were impacted by that experience. 


The Wickford Art Association’s Journeys Onward explores the artistic expression of veterans and their families in the context of some of their specific military experiences.  Many veterans and their families want to tell their stories, but those conversations can be difficult to start.  Often, art has been shown to be able to foster communication.

Every member of the U.S. Armed Forces and their family members embark on a journey of experiences that are both shared by many, and specific to each individual. Those experiences can be complex and enduring - perhaps lifelong. Their impact and intensity may be hard to grasp for those outside the Armed Forces community.

Accompanied by the artists’ written words, their 2D or 3D art reflects the military experiences of veterans - retired or currently serving - or their family members. It creates an opportunity and forum for artists to share their past experiences and their journeys onward. Their art and relevant written words can offer a common ground for those conversations to start. Communication is what this exhibit is all about.

Please read the prospectus carefully and only consider submitting work if you can comply with the requirements and timetable outlined in this document.

Continuing its tradition of melding innovative art with community relevancy, the Wickford Art Association brings “Journeys Onward” to those who have participated in the military experience and those who have an interest in understanding that experience.  With an opening reception on Sunday, May 19, 2019 from 1 to 3 PM, the exhibit runs through June 16th with related events including the screening of award-winning films and related presentations. Please check back for a calendar of events.
