Art & Words: Art Inspired by Poetry

Emerge Gallery

Entry Deadline: Mar. 17

PO Box 554
Saugerties, NY 12477

This is an on-line exclusive exhibition. Celebrating National Poetry Month. Emerge Gallery is pleased to highlight the power of words and their connection to visual arts through the exhibition Art & Words. For as far back as the times of Plato, writers have been inspired by art to create poetry true to the form of the original work, yet adding their unique poetic perspective. Art & Words is encouraging artists to create a new work of art inspired by a poem of their choice. Inspiration for the artwork can be a classic, contemporary or original poem.

All styles and works on paper, fiber, paintings, photography, and small sculpture will be considered. Hudson Valley and NY Metro area artists are especially encouraged to submit work. This exhibition is open to US residents only. Submit work and more information:

Emerge Gallery offers a wide selection of art that will suit all tastes and budgets. Chronogrammie winner — Art Gallery (2022), Chronogram | “Best of Hudson Valley — Art Gallery” (2019), Hudson Valley Magazine
