The Wickford Art Association has announced the launch of the ninth annual Poetry & Art project.
An annual event whereby original art or original poetry lead a response from our creative community, 2021’s theme is “Color” and will be led by original artwork. Member and non-member artists are invited to submit one to three original works, created within the past three years, and not previously shown at member or juried exhibits at Wickford Art Association.
All works will be juried by a panel of juried artist-members and approximately 40 works will be selected for inclusion in the October 2021 exhibit, a full virtual gallery, and a limited-edition publication. Each work will be assigned to a poet selected through jury to then create a responsive written work. The paired artworks and poems will be displayed throughout the October exhibit and as companions in the 2021 Poetry & Art book.
The Poetry & Art in-gallery and virtual gallery exhibit will occur Oct. 6-24. For more information, including the call for art and registration form, visit wickfordart.org/exhibits-2021/9th-annual-poetry-art. Registration for artwork is now open and closes on April 2.
For more information on individual exhibits or programs, call (401) 294-6840 or visit www.wickfordart.org.
