ART/SPEAKS: A Free Writing Lab

October 6 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

edgewood2Write On, Door County is pleased to partner again this season with Edgewood Orchard Galleries on Art/Speaks, a free writing lab encouraging people to write in response to the images on exhibit. Led by an accomplished writer, these 60-minute writing activities are perfect for both beginning and advanced writers in any genre.

Edgewood’s final exhibit of the season features “Gifts from the Heart.” Participants will be encouraged to write from the heart in response to the pieces displayed.

About Art/Speaks:

The practice of using words to comment on a piece of visual art—ekphrasis—is an ancient one. One of the earliest and most commonly cited forms of ekphrasis occurs in The Iliad, when Homer provides a long and discursive account of the elaborate scenes embossed on the shield of Achilles. Contemporary literature provides many fine examples of ekphrastic writing.

Instructors will provide some background and examples of ekphrasis. Participants will be asked to write in response to one of several gallery pieces selected for the program. Following the writing, participants will share their work aloud with other participants.
