Artists Networking Mixer and Contest: A gallery reception with a twist!

Spontaneous Combustion at Rockstar Gallery: Bringing  two art forms together, art and poetry!

An Ekphrastic Poetry Experience. Poets, join us for this one of a kind
contest, based on Allen Ginsberg’s famous phrase “First thought best
thought” which described the Beat poets’ love for spontaneity and
immediacy in the arts. You are invited to contemplate artwork by the
featured artists at Rockstar gallery and to write a poem in response to
one of the pieces. Yes, you will turn down your inner editor and tune in
to what the art says to you in the moment. Poets will have one hour to
pen an ekphrastic poem, which they will read to an audience of
listeners, posting their poem beside the piece that inspired it. The
audience will then vote on their favorite poem of the evening. Editing
is overrated! It is time to just combust!

April 13, there is no theme, only a size restrictoin: 12"x12"
All art in competition is under $100
