Ekphrasis at the Groop Gallery: Part I of IV
I was asked to participate as a local writer from one of the more prominent local writers (poet) in Prince George, Al Rempel. Al did a lot of work to set up this art exhibit project with Melanie from the Groop Art Gallery in Prince George, BC. The event consisted of visual art work from a variety of local artists who work with several mediums that included sculptures, paintings, and photographs. Then the writers came in and offered a poem for a piece from the exhibit. I wrote four pieces.
I arrived late to the opening of the event because my friend was having motorcycle issues. I got to the art gallery 45 minutes late smelling of gas, oil, and grease. A month later at the exhibits closing I was unable to attend as I was preparing to write the LSAT in another city. Al generously offered to read my pieces for me. I will post these pieces as a four part series with the name of each painting and the artists’ name. I will not be posting pictures of the pieces as I do not have permission. If I get permission I will update these posts.
