2022 Gallery now open!

The 2022 Ekphrastic Celebration gallery is now open!

Browse some incredible pieces by local artists. If a work of art resonates with you, write a poem inspired by it! The top placing poems will win an award for the poet and the artist they were inspired by!

Poetry submissions open on May 23rd and close June 13th!

Note that the titles of the artwork and any additional commentary will be hidden until poetry submissions are closed so as to not influence the poets.
