Poetic Paintings
Annual Invitational Exhibition
February 6 - 28, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, February 5, 5-8 p.m.

This year's Invitational includes new works from fifty-one contemporary artists from Lancaster and the surrounding region. The theme this year is inspired by the quote "Painting is a silent poem and poetry is a speaking picture." Artists were challenged to find a favorite poem and create a work of art inspired by it, much like Charles Demuth did for his work The Figure 5 in Gold, 1928, which was inspired by the William Carlos Williams poem.
