Ekphrastic challenge

I had never heard the term “ekphrastic” until recently, and I am now providing paintings to two such shows. Essentially the term means that a poem can “give voice” to a painting, and these shows pair poet and artist to deliver the experience to the patron.

The KAA show, “Black & White, and Read All Over”, will not be shown until late summer, but the work will be viewed be the poets on June 4th.

“Challenge”, the largest of the “16” pieces, at 28″x26″, will be my submission. It still need a little work, but this is a decent representation.

I am Daryl-Ann Hurst, (also using Daryl-Ann Dartt Hurst), an artist and writer, who is also interested in antiques, travel and the outdoors. I am hoping to use this blog to meld all of the interests. I was born and raised in California, have a BA in art, have been published in the New England Antiques Journal and have photography on the Gulf of Maine's website. I have shown paintings and prints nationally since 1978.
