Art – Poetry Pairing 2017

“Painting is silent poetry,
And poetry is painting that speaks.”
— Plutarch

We had 18 pairings of artists and poets for our 2017 Art-Poetry Pairing exhibition at the Worcester Public Library. This show runs from March 1 to March 31, 2017. The hanging was Wednesday, March 1 from 6-8pm. The take-down is Friday, March 31, from 4:30 to 5:30pm. The Meet-The-Artist reception was Saturday, March 18th from 1-3pm and all were welcome!

Joining the Blackstone Valley Art Association artists are poets from the Sutton Writing Group and the Worcester Writers Collaborative.

Here’s the full details we provided each pairing on how this process works!

Art and Poetry Pairing – Details

Each artist gave the poet a visual work of art to interpret. At the same time, each poet wrote an original poem for the artist to interpret. Here are the resulting pairings! Click on each image to see the full details of the artwork and poetry for that pair.
