On Ekphrastic Poetry: Workshop & Lecture about Ludmila Pawlowska Facilitator: Poet Stephen Gibson
Saturday, April 6th, 2019 1:00pm - 3:00pm
St. Paul’s Episcopal Church 188 S. Swinton Avenue in Delray Beach

This event is being held in conjunction with Icons in Transformation, a traveling modern art exhibition featuring more than 100 contemporary works by Russian-Swedish abstract expressionist Ludmila Powlowska. The exhibit recalls the icons the artist had seen in Russian monasteries and is running at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church through April 7. Facilitator Stephen Gibson’s poetry workshop will be on Ekphrasis poetry, poems which focus on other works of art, like paintings, photography, or sculpture, as their subjects. Workshop participants will explore how Ekphrasis, rather than being solely description, can help to explore each individual poet’s sense of the world. $10 per person
