Ekphrastacy: Art and Poetry Continues

Shawn Watrous

EKPHRASTACY: Artists Talk + Poets Respond

Thursday, October 1, 7pm

Cleveland Heights Poet Laureate Meredith Holmes has invited rising regional poets to respond with original verse inspired by select imagery in the exhibition. It’s always a lively time; come a bit early to get a seat and enjoy refreshments! FREE.

Heights Arts writes:
Join us this week for Ekphrastacy. What processes and concepts are explored in contemporary art? Come hear Emergent 2015 artists Joanne Arnett, Abbey Blake, Matthew Gallagher and Shawn Watrous discuss their work, then hear Zachary Thomas, Aaron Bennett, Amanda Stovicek, John Roth, and Natasha Rodriguez-Carroll--poets in the NEOMFA (Northeast Ohio Masters in Fine Arts) creative writing program--read poems created in response to art on view in the gallery.

Emergent 2015, on view through October 17, showcases ten rising artists who graduated from area art programs in recent years and are now producing significant work.
