ArtPoems 2019

ArtPoems is a collaboration of artists and poets, inspiring each other, to create new art and new poetry. 11 artists and 11 poets are paired and exchange art and poetry. An artist will create a work inspired by a poem and a poet will write a poem inspired by an artwork. In total 22 new creations result. ArtPoems culminates in a stage performance incorporating art, poetry, and music.

Here’s how ArtPoems works: Eleven artists and eleven poets get together at a meeting in the fall with five of his or her works of art or poems in hand. At the meeting, each poet draws an artist’s name and each artist draws a poet’s name to determine the 22 partnerships for the show. The result is 11 works of art that have been inspired by poems and 11 poems that have been inspired by artwork.

Sometimes the artist/poet looked at his or her choices at the meeting and made an immediate selection. But not always. Some poets shared that they brought five paintings home and lived with them for a time to see which spoke most loudly. And some artists brought the poems home and read them over and over, waiting for an image to emerge in their minds. The result is an exciting show with some wonderful poetry and art work in a wide range of media including paintings, jewelry, and sculpture.
