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 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.
