Journeys: 13 Perspectives
(Annual Studio Artists' Exhibition)
June 18, 5 to 7 PM: Reception
July 19, 1 to 3 PM: Artist Talk with Artists
The thirteen studio artists at The Brush Art Gallery and Studios are celebrating the spirit of the ‘artistic journey’ in their show titled “Journeys: 13 Perspectives.” A culmination of creative experiences are highlighted in this annual summer exhibition. As an added attraction, the Brush studio artists have invited the UMass Lowell Literary Society, to write ekphrastic poetry based on the artworks on view in the gallery. The poetry will be read at the artists’ opening reception, and will later be displayed to compliment the exhibit.
Ekphrastic poetry is a literary description of or commentary on a visual work of art. Poets viewed the artwork and selected pieces that moved them to create their literary art. This process resulted in a powerful collection of vivid poetry.
