These are entries for Expressions: Art & Verse at the Addison Center for the Arts. I am the administrator of the event. It's our third one for February. We skipped 2021, though.
Expressions is a collaboration between the Illinois State Poetry Society and visual artists. Next week, the poets are going to select an artwork from a bunch of artist entries and write a poem about it. This is called ekphrastic poetry. Then in February we meet and the poets recite their poems. The poems are displayed next to their corresponding artworks.
I am entering some pieces that I think might produce an unusual poem. There is a fourth one. I'll upload it later when I remember which one it was. (Later. Blue Star. I don't think it's ever been in a show)
