Fall Invitational: In Conversation II
October 5 to 30
Building on the success of the Coast Collective’s first collaboration between poets and painters in 2015, the region’s poets have again inspired a talented cadre of artists to create original works for this important exhibition.
The invitational exhibit is part of the Coast Collective’s 8th anniversary celebration and fundraising activities in support of the Society for Arts on the South Island, the arts non-profit which operates the Coast Collective Art Centre. A 60-page full colour soft-cover book has been produced chronicling the collaboration, which will be released on October 5.
Sooke artist Linda Gordon and author Linda Green Abraham will be at the Coast Collective Gallery, Friday October 7 at 7:00 p.m., at the Meet the Artists night.
It is a pairing of art and poetry. Linda Green Abraham wrote a poem called “Winter” and Linda Gordon has painted a corresponding painting.
The show runs from oct 5 to 30.
