Fusion Poetry:Art is an exhibition about the creative process of different types of artists, and the interactions between them. Drawing from the success of the annual Bank of the Arts Juried Exhibition and accompanying Ekphrastic Poetry Competition, Craven Arts Council and Gallery has decided to unveil a new poetry/art competition, taking the process of ekphrasis and turning it on its head.
This year poets were asked to submit their original poetry to be used by visual & other artists as inspiration for a piece. Craven Arts Council will collect all poetry entries and display them for selected artists to chose from. Artists will create an original piece of visual art based off the poem in their chosen medium.
