Virtual Poetry: Poem Portraits

Tuesday, November 16 | 4 to 5 pm
General Registration

In their Aldrich exhibitions, artists Lucia Hierro (Marginal Costs) and Hugo McCloud (from where i stand ) create vivid portraits of people – without ever showing a single face! Poetry does the same in words. Come “paint” poem portraits of the people you know with Barb Jennes, Aldrich Educator and Ridgefield Poet Laureate, using tools like imagery, hyperbole, and allusion.

Virtual Poetry: It’s in the Cards!

Using Adrienne Elise Tarver’s current exhibition The Sun, the Moon, and the Truth as a springboard, we’ll explore the centuries-old symbolism of Tarot then write poems that reflect some of the themes found in the deck’s Major Arcana cards.
