Get Stitched

Altered book art by Valerie Savarie, inspired by Drew Myron poem. Now showing at Valkarie Gallery in Colorado.


In a mystery
that threads

horizon to sky
river to ocean
bird to flight

a simple stitch
binds me
to you

with a filament
as ordinary
and grand

as earth to sun
love to life

- Drew Myron


I'm delighted to share this poem and join 2 artists and 10 poets taking part in  Ekphrastic: A Collaboration of Visual and Literary Art, showing at Valkarie Gallery in Lakewood, Colorado.

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.

The exhibition is an inspired collaboration between artists and writers. Each writer was invited to submit a poem, which was then visually interpreted by the two artists.

Ekphrastic runs September 23 - October 18, 2015. Opening Reception is on Friday, September 25, 6 - 9pm, with a Poetry Reading on Saturday, October 10, 5 - 7:30pm.
