EGGS-PHRASTIC WRITING!

A Special Art/Speaks EGGStravaganza Creative Lab

20 Kuhns, Jeanne.Serenity Bridge YogaThe 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. Art/Speaks is a long-running Write On program encouraging people to write in response to art at local galleries.

We take a unique spin on this literary tradition, with this special edition of Art/Speaks, in collaboration with the Public Arts Initiative of Egg Harbor. EGGS-Phrastic Writing will inspire participants to write in response to one of the many eggs on display throughout the village of Egg Harbor.

This program is free and open to all ages.

This annual art show brings new outdoor sculpture to the village for public display.  This season has added four new sculptures displayed in the Village for public enjoyment. Participating artists include Adam Meurer “Sail”, Barbara and Doug Henderson “Garden Spirit” (represented at Woodwork Gallery), and  Stephen Yankowski “Hallelujah” and “Swerve” and “Dive”(represented by Cappaert Contemporary Gallery). These nationally known artists have created unique art pieces in a variety of different mediums, including glass and metals, for the 3rd season of “Celebrate! Sculpture”.
Maps with locations of the “Celebrate! Sculpture” artwork and Egg Harbor’s permanent outdoor sculpture walk are available at the Egg Harbor Welcome Center and local business. All of the artwork is for sale with part of the proceeds going to help purchase additional pieces of public art for the Village of Egg Harbor’s growing Sculpture Walk.

“Celebrate! Sculpture” will be on display thru the end of October.
