Twelve writers and twelve artists have been hard at work this summer responding to each other’s work. Their combined pieces will be unveiled at an art opening and reading on Saturday, August 20th, starting at 7 pm. The 11 by 17 broadsides are made up of an image of the artist’s work along with the writer’s piece printed side by side on archival paper, suitable for framing. They will be for sale, along with smaller versions of each duo.
New this year, a book featuring the entire collection will be for sale as well.
Along with the broadsides, the original art pieces will be on display affording viewers insight into a variety of techniques.
Writers will read their poems and short prose pieces at the event.
There is a suggested donation of $5 and all proceeds from the event and art sales benefit the Hoffman Center for the Arts.
This project is supported in part by a grant from The Oregon Cultural Trust: Oregonians sustaining, developing, and participating in our arts, heritage and humanities.
