Art – Poetry Pairing 2019

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

We had 17 pairings of artists and poets for our 2019 Art-Poetry Pairing exhibition. The show first ran at the Blackstone Public Library for the month of March 2018! Come on out and see it in person! It will then travel to the Millbury Barnes & Noble for the last week of the show.

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

Blackstone Public Library – March
Millbury Barnes & Noble – April 1-8

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

Art and Poetry Pairing – How It Works

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.
