ekphrastic encounters

Posted by Daniela Elza on Dec 06 2012

This weekend I will be going in with a number of other poets listed below to write to the current exhibit which goes up today at the Gallery of the Jewish Community Centre. I love these occasions that open up for the possibility of collaborations for all sorts of surprising ekphrastic encounters. Here are the details. Come and listen to what we cook up. What you will hear will be less than a week old. Still cooking, steaming, and smokin’. Come and cook up something of your own. There will be time for the audience to write something and share at open mic.

    Word Whips inspired by art exhibit Sefirot by James K-M

    @ the Jewish Community Centre, Gallery Room, 950 West 41st Ave, Vancouver
    Free Admission. Everyone is welcome.

    Join us for an evening of art and poetry with Pamela Bentley as host. Poets Dennis E. Bolen, Daniela Elza, David Shewell, Eva Waldauf, Wilhelmina Salmi, and Bonnie Nish will read their poetry inspired by the art exhibited on the walls of the gallery. As usual, there will be time for the audience to participate by writing to the exhibit and reciting their poems during the ‘open mic’ portion of the evening.
    Presented by the Sidney and Gertrude Zack Gallery in collaboration with Pandora’s Collective and the Isaac Waldman Jewish Public Library, and made possible by the Yosef Wosk Poetry Initiative Grant.
