Poetic License – Albany

Poetic License – Albany

October 7 – October 28, 2022

Lark Hall, 351 Hudson Ave., Albany

Hudson Valley Writers Guild & Upstate Artists Guild present Poetic License – Albany celebrating the collaboration of visual art & the written word.

“Ekphrastic art” is defined as the response of an artist in one medium to a work of art by an artist in another medium. Its more common manifestation is in poetry written about visual art, e.g., paintings, photographs, drawings, sculptures, etc.

Poetic License is a project that turns that around, giving local visual artists (Onna AdamsLucia Mabel SmithRebecca SchoonmakerDon Shore, Lisa Schweigert, Deborah Adams,Tina JohnstonKali EngelhardtMelissa Mansfield,Tom CorradoRoja EbrahimiNatasha PernickaAdam FurgangNina StanleyRobyn Diaz, and Katelyn Choiniere) an opportunity to respond to the work of local poets (Shawna NortonBessie Rose, Tom Corrado, Shirah PollockBarbara UngarLaura WhalenMegeen MulhollandCheryl A.
