ARTAMO GALLERY presents Paintings and Poems / Poems and Paintings, an exhibition of visual art and poetry and their stimulating influence on each other.
On show are paintings that were inspired by a poem or a verse, and poems, whose creative impulse came from contemplating visual art. In some cases the artist and the poet are the same, one person, expressing thoughts and views simultaneously I words and matching image. Other visual art forms, such as photography and collage, paired with poems round off the show.
Participating artists and poets are Janet Bothne (artist), Gordon Huether (artist), Françoise Issaly (artist and writer), David Krieger (poet, co-founder and president of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation), E.M. Laskowski-Caujolle (writer), Perie Longo (Santa Barbara Poet Laureate), Jack N. Mohr (artist and designer), Michael Moon (artist), Julia Pinkham (artist), Michelle Rhea (photographer and poet), Suha Sin (artist), David Starkey (poet), and Norton Wright (artist).
