All ages!

 

 

 

PALM BEACH POETRY FESTIVAL

Launches Plein Air Poetry Contest Inspired by
‘En Plein Air’ Exhibit at Cornell Museum of Art

Deadline for Poetic Entries is March 8, 2015

 

 

 

 Susan R. Williamson, Director of the Palm Beach Poetry Festival,  announces a Plein Air Poetry Contest.  To enter, local writers are encouraged to submit up to 30 lines of original poetry inspired by the eight designated works from the “En Plein Air” exhibit now running at the Cornell Museum at the Delray Beach Center for the Arts.

 

"Pumped Up" by Manon Sander

“Pumped Up” by Manon Sander

 

Plein Air refers to the art of painting in outdoor daylight. The “En Plein Air” exhibit features paintings of Delray Beach and other Palm Beach County locations.

 

 

"Gater at Loxahatchee Wetlands" by Kerry Eriksen

“Gator at Loxahatchee Wetlands” by Kerry Eriksen

 

“The poetic tradition of taking inspiration from works of art is called ‘ekphrasis’ from the Greek,” said Ms. Williamson. “Ekphrastic Poems may include literal descriptions of a work of art, the poet´s mood in response to a work of art, metaphorical associations inspired by a work of art, or personal memories about a work of art. It’s a tradition quite alive in America today, and we’re pleased to join with the Cornell Museum and Plein Air Palm Beach  (PleinAirPalmBeach.com) to present this opportunity for poets to be inspired. Co-founder and Organizer of Plein Air Palm Beach, Ralph Papa said, “As written or spoken words can evoke images for both the artist and the poet, poets may represent a visual image in words. Visual artists, particularly plein air painters capture a scene in the moment as they see it.”

 

"Spring Path at Jupiter Ridge" by Ruth Weiss

“Spring Path at Jupiter Ridge” by Ruth Weiss

 

Poems should submitted by email in the body of the message, directly to pleinair@palmbeachpoetryfestival.org no later than March 8, 2015.

 

"Misty Waters at Riverbend" by Chris Kinga

“Misty Waters at Riverbend” by Chris King

 

 

The winning poet will receive a $100 prize, and $25 will be given to each of the four runners-up. Their submitted poems – along with another five “honorable mentions” – will be published on the Poetry Festival’s website at http://palmbeachpoetryfestival.org/pleinaircontest.

 

To enter the contest, poets will submit a poem inspired by the eight selected paintings of the exhibit.

 

"Sausage Tree" by Sheila Wolff

 ART EVENTS

DICK YOSINOFF

Solo Exhibit

Dick Yosinoff–Photographer or painter?  Why not both?  In his youth in Providence, Rhode Island he entered a city sponsored school drawing contest and was awarded a scholarship to classes at the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design. Dick often pulled off the road to photograph barns or deserted boat houses, shot striking candid portraits of New York City dwellers, and photographed foreign cultures during travels. He utilized his camera eye and skill to capture subjects which he expressed through oil on canvas.  Recently he has experimented with an abstract expressionism painting style and found this style to be refreshingly creative.  You are invited to view a sample collection of both his paintings and photographs.

The next four prizes are gift certificates of $50 each, from the PEEPS® company.

 

 

Joyce Brown tells The Rickie Report, “For the last two years, Sid Walesh has won first place. His works have been extraordinary ones that rotate on a pedestal.  Sid has asked that someone challenge him for first place. Please consider answering this challenge by giving Sid some real competition. It is not that the other entries were not extraordinary. I have always been blown away by your creativity. I think it is the extra complexity, for which the judges have awarded 1st place.”

Sarah LaPierre

 

Thick paint is a prime focus in the collection of work created by artist Sarah LaPierre. Palette knives and heavy bodied acrylic paints provide the full textures and vibrant colors that are characteristics of her style. Sarah gains her inspiration from the beautiful sceneries throughout her home state of Florida, with special focus skyward. Her late father, artist Joseph LaPierre remains the strongest influence in her creative ventures. Sarah’s artwork can be found globally in the homes of her many patrons, brightening the walls of professional offices and businesses, as well as locally through gallery events and showcases at fine arts festivals throughout south Florida.

The South Florida Basket and Fiber Guild was formed in January 2013 by a dozen enthusiastic fiber artists from Palm Beach and Broward Counties. Our purpose is to provide educational and promotional opportunities for members, both individually and as a group. We welcome all fiber artists who have a common interest in creating baskets, vessels and other woven creations to collaborate in an environment of camaraderie and fellowship.
