Words can open up new ways of seeing, changing our ideas, creating new views. How many times have posted writings at an exhibition revealed hidden layers and meanings?
This month there is a new show at the Duluth Art Institute combining poetry and art; not meant to explain but rather to compliment, amplify or share in the experience. Faith King is a local writer and artist who has written ekphrastic poetry, an imaginative, artistic response to visual stimuli, here in response to paintings, prints and drawings of local artists and some of her own work.
The work of Faith King will be on display in the DAI Corridor Gallery through the end of 2017 with the opening reception happening Thursday, November 16 from 5-7 p.m. Duluth Art Institute.
