9th Annual Poetry & Art BEGINS with a CALL for ART
March 1 - April 2
Wickford Art Association (WAA) announces the launch of the 9th 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 3 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 through 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, 2021.
