Artist’s Talk and Ekphrasis Workshopin Conjunction with 100 Ways An Old Artist Can DieAS220, Main GalleryWednesday, December 17, 20145:00 to 7:00 PMJohn Kotula will be discussing the concept and presentation of his exhibit and reflecting on some of the artwork. This will be followed by a writing workshop conducted by Kim Baker.Have you ever stood in front of a work of art and pondered the story being told on canvas and unfolding just off canvas? Would you like to attempt to write about what you see and what you don’t see?In this workshop, we will discuss an ancient poetic form called ekphrasis, or writing inspired by art. Using AS220’s exhibit 100 Ways an Old Artist Can Die, we will examine various pieces in the show and then talk together about our interpretations of the story in what we see. Then, we will create our own stories about what we see and share those stories with each other as you feel comfortable. This workshop welcomes anyone who wants to look at art together and learn to tell the stories of it in poetry. Prose writers, journal writers, bloggers, and non- writers are also welcomed.
The artist’s talk and the workshop are free and open to the public.
