Ekphrastic: Artful Collaboration 

EKPHRASTIC  |  A Collaboration of Visual and Literary Art

Ekphrastic: in which one medium of art tries to relate to another medium by defining and describing its essence and form, and in doing so, relate more directly to the audience, through its illuminative liveliness.

Ekphrastic is an inspired collaboration between artists and writers, showing at Valkarie Gallery in the Belmar neighborhood of Lakewood, Colorado. Writers were invited to submit poems from which artists Valerie Savarie and Sharon Eisley then created a visual interpretation of each written piece.
