Artists' Reception: Art and Poetry Meet at Addison Center for the Arts for “Expressions: Art & Verse”
Please note, this event has expired.
The ACA is proud to present “Expressions: Art and Verse”, a collaborative visual art exhibit and ekphrastic poetry event between the Artists’ Association of Elk Grove Village (AAEGV) and the Illinois State Poetry Society (ISPS).
The Poetry Foundation defines an ekphrastic poem as a vivid description of a scene or, more commonly, a work of art. Through the imaginative act of narrating and reflecting on the “action” of a painting or sculpture, the poet may amplify and expand its meaning. The art and poetry exhibit opens on Wednesday, February 12, 2020, and will feature 27 works of art by the AAEGV. The poets of the ISPS have composed poems about each piece and they are displayed with each of the artworks. The exhibitView more
