Waltham Forest Arts Club organised an exhibition to coincide with the Waltham Forest Literature Festival.
May 23rd to 28th in The Red Room at Ye Olde Rose & Crown, 53 Hoe Street, Walthamstow E17 4SA.
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.
