Word & Image ~ Now in its sixth year

Through October the gallery will feature artwork and writing created over the summer in a response project called “Word & Image.” Now in its sixth year, twelve selected artists and writers are randomly paired.  Each writer and each artist creates new work in response to one of three pieces submitted by their partner. A writer might create a new poem in response to a watercolor, for example. A photographer might make a new image in response to a prose piece.

The resulting new works will be printed on broadsides, which will hang in the Hoffman Gallery, as well as published in a book. The gallery will also exhibit the twelve pieces of response art. The Word & Image book, broadsides, and art will be available for sale in the gallery.

Visit the Hoffman Gallery to enjoy the expressive, sometimes astonishing, responses.

 


 

Electric Moon Dance

She glides with us across the sun’s
ballroom—with folds of her luminous
gown undulating crescent to full
and crescent again.

She emanates power while
waltzing through her phases—
our tides, over time, cresting and
ebbing with her grip.

She electrifies men, women, wolves
in earnest night prowls—
lightning bolts striking beneath
her glass slippers.

She waxes and wanes glowing
on currents of plankton and
ghost-edging rabbit ears for
owls to see—turning the postures
of all.

She has been our partner in
this dance from the beginning—
a voltaic hold thrilling life—to be
ever here beyond
our stay.

Words by Sherry Green in response to morning moon by Blue Selby
