The Long Conversation: Poetry and Painting

The Long Conversation: Poetry and Painting

“Painting is silent poetry, and poetry painting that speaks.” – Simonides

The exhibition coincides with the Waltham Forest Literature Festival.

For this exhibition artists have interpreted the long-standing relationship between the written word and visual art, in the broadest terms. Poetry that paints a picture, paintings that are full of poetry, text-based work, artists’ books, sound installations, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and poetry readings are all included.
There will be a display of books to read and purchase.

Opening party:
May 23rd 7-10pm

May 24th - 28th
6-8pm Tuesday, 6-10pm Wed. to Friday, 10am –10pm on Saturday

The Red Room, at Ye Olde Rose & Crown
