The Long Conversation: Poetry and Painting
Painting is silent poetry, and poetry painting that speaks.” – Simonides

Written words that paint a picture or pictures full of poetry.

Artists were called to interpret the long-standing relationship between the written word and visual art, in the broadest terms.  All mediums were encouraged including: concrete poetry, text-based work, artists’ books, sound installations, photography, painting, printmaking, sculpture, performance, and poetry readings.  We would especially like to encourage our writers and poets to participate in this exhibition. There was a long table for display of books to be read, along with editions and cards.
