POETRY READINGS 
7:30pm State Theatre

Crossings’ 16th Annual Poet-Artist Collaboration exhibit is on display March 27 through April 27, celebrating a pairing of two art forms. Come see how poetry has inspired visual art. Fifty-one poets and visual artists took part in this years’ exhibit which can be seen free of charge during regular business hours. A reception and poetry reading takes place Sat., April 8, at 6:30 p.m. both at the gallery and next door at the State Theatre.

About 120 poets and artists participated in this year’s event by entering up to three poems each, or submitting artistic work samples. Jurors winnowed more than 230 poems down to just 26. Other jurors selected 26 artists from those who entered. For this exhibit, each selected artist chooses one selected poem from which to create an artwork. Poems and the work they inspired are displayed together.

The poems share many familiar life experiences, from moving across country to losing a purse at Starbucks as well as experiencing nightmares and shadows and partings from loved ones. The artists turned their vision of the poem given to them into works using a variety of mediums, including oil and watercolor, mixed media, water-colored linocut, encaustic and more.
