Art & Words: An Exhibition of Artwork & Poetry Inspiring One Another


May 5, 2017 to May 29, 2017
11:00 AM until 05:00 PM

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).


Emerge Gallery is pleased to highlight the power of words and their connection to visual arts through the exhibition Art & Words: Ekphrasis. Art & Words: Ekphrasis consists of an exhibition of art and poetry— side-by-side — that includes artists and poets inspiring one another. Existing poetry was collected by invited poets and artwork was curated from artists throughout the Hudson Valley and New York Metropolitan area. Artists and poets were given the opportunity to choose selected poems or pieces of art that spoke to them and to create a new piece of art—be it a visual art piece or poem—based on the original inspiration. The challenge will be in determining which came first, the poem or the artwork. Artwork and poetry will be on display through May 29, 2017 and will be available to view and purchase through the Emerge Gallery shop at


Select preview of Art & Words: Ekphrasis at Saugerties Public Library on April 22, 2017, at 2PM.
