Our winter art exhibition — Written Response Requested — is in full swing at the Pine Hills Branch (517 Western Ave.) and viewers have the unique opportunity to participate in the show by creating their own writings, in response to the art, and submitting them to our juried writing contest.
For the exhibition, each artist was paired with a writer who created a unique writing prompt for one piece of artwork, and then responded to their own prompt by creating a short piece of writing—fiction, poetry, essay—that is displayed alongside the artwork. For the other pieces in the show, prominent regional writers created writing prompts that will be displayed alongside the art.
Viewers are invited to respond to the prompts by submitting their own written pieces. The writing contest is in partnership with the Pine Hills Review and faculty members from the Creative Writing Program at The College of Saint Rose. Selected submissions will be showcased during the show in Spring 2015 and published in a chapbook.
Contest details are online.
