MIDCOAST — “Ekphrastic Pairings” is a collaboration between The Poets Corner and Page Gallery. The exhibition and readings make connections between visual art and poetry to encourage us to consider new ways of seeing and deepen our understanding of both forms of art.

The Poets Corner and Page Gallery invite the community to write poems in response to images in the “Ekphrastic Pairings” exhibition. Images can be viewed online at thepagegallery.com/exhibition/ekphrastic-pairings/artwork or in person at Page Gallery, 23 Bay View St., Camden.

Ekphrastic writing is an age-old tradition of creating a literary description or commentary on a work of art. The public is invited to submit their poems online through Submittable. See details at thepoetscorner.org/events. Submissions received by Nov. 1 will be considered for “The Poets’ Selection” or “The Artists’ Selection.”

“The Poets Selection” – 10 poems will be selected by The Poets Corner to be read at a Zoom event Sunday, Nov. 13.

“The Artists’ Selection” – Artists in the show will select 10 poems to be read in person at Page Gallery Saturday, Nov. 19.

For more information, submission guidelines and a link to submitting poems, visit thepoetscorner.org.
