Poetry in Art exhibit

It all started after reading a post on Peter's Pottery blog  in September of 2013 about an exhibit featuring artwork which was inspired by poetry.  I thought this was a great idea and the other members of  Riverside Artists Gallery agreed.  This may not be new to a lot of people, in fact I think some of the writers involved in this event have participated in similar projects.  It was new to me though, and, not being acquainted with the world of writers, it took reading a New Zealand potter's blog for me to learn of it.

The picture of the poster for the event does not show the names very well, so below is a list of the poets and artists who are participating in Poetry in Art.  There have been a couple of changes since the poster was printed, in case you have sharp eyes and have actually spotted the difference.

Writers:  Wilma Acree, Jann Adams, Peg Clifford, Chris Friend, Sally Pebler Hannan, Becca J.R. Lachman, Martha McGovern, Wendy McVicker, Jean Mikhail, Nellie Hufford Ruby, Lynne Bodry Shuman, Susan Sheppard, Scott H. Urban, Christina Veladota, Kristine Williams.
Artists:  Beth Nash, Scott Bookman, Robin Brandjes, Thaddeus Brejwo, Betsy Cook, Debbie Dick, Ginny Killian, Jennifer Lasko, George Longfellow, Jen McKenna, Akemi Matsumoto, Todd Morrow, Gwen Noe, Cathy Norosky, Anna Prince, Bonnie Proudfoot, Lynda Rhodes, Melissa Rohrer, Jane Ryals, Geoff Shenkel.

Writers and artists are from the Athens, Ohio, Marietta, Ohio and Parkersburg, West Virginia area.

This is my entry, based on the poem by Wilma Acree, "If You're a Water Sign".  It's going to be a busy week, but I hope to get of few pictures of the other artwork in the show. 


  1. Love this idea! Love when the blogosphere comes together too!
