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.
