Poetry in Art:

A Collaboration of Regional Writers and Artists at Riverside Artists Gallery Opens in Marietta on Aug. 25

Twenty-three noted poets from the Athens, Marietta and Parkersburg area and twenty-five artists, which include present members of Riverside Artists Gallery, past members, and visiting artists, have combined talents to create “Poetry in Art,” a collaborative exhibit which opens at Riverside Artists Gallery, 219 Second St. in Marietta, Ohio on Saturday, August 25 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Regional poets submitted diverse works which were then selected by the artists as sources of inspiration. The resulting artwork engages with the style or subject matter of the poetry. The exhibit will feature artistic media ranging from painting, photography, sculpture, woodwork, ceramics, glass, to mixed-media and collage.  Each work of art will be displayed beside the poem that inspired it.

A poetry reading by the participating poets and a discussion by the artists of how the poetry inspired their art pieces will begin at 7 pm on August 25 at the opening reception.  Please join us to discover how works of poetry have inspired works of art! The show continues through September 29.
