Ekphrastacy at the Heights

Heights Arts presents the next of their continuing series of ekphrastic poetry events, "Ekphrastacy: Artists Talk and Poets Respond" next week, Thursday, July 7 at the Heights Arts Gallery at 2175 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights, OH, 7 p.m.

At a reception and gallery evening, artists Christi Birchfield, Grace Chin, Dexter Davis, Yumiko Goto, Doug Meyer, Mark Slankard, and Douglas Max Utter will talk about concepts and development of their work, and poets Jill Lange, Vince Robinson, and Linda Goodman Robiner, along with Cleveland Heights Poet Laureate Christine Howey, will respond to the art with poetry addressing the works of art on view.

If you like art and poetry both, Ekphrastacy is an event to check out.

--(and even if, like me, you can't make it to the Ekphrastacy event (sorry! Thursdays are an evening I'm already committed on), do check out the art next time you're in the Cedar Lee neighborhood!)

Or, visit the gallery, find an artwork that has something to say to you, and try it yourself:
