Ekphrastic Poetry with Art

Do you know the art of Ekphrastic Poetry?  Let your imagination soar while creating an Ekphrastic poem with the whimsical visual artist and poet, Helma Rogge Rehders. 

 

Ekphrasis means “description” in Greek.  An Ekphrastic poem is a vivid description of a scene or, more commonly, a work of art.  The process involves the imaginative act of narrating and reflecting on the "action" of a painting, sculpture, or photograph.  The poet may amplify and expand its meaning.  Rhyme, free verse, anything goes!  Come in and join us for what always proves to be an entertaining experience!   Samples of Helma’s paintings will be available to add an artful dimension during this poetic experience.
