ART | Poetry      

Artists and poets meet on the last Saturday of each month (from 4pm-6pm) 

A group of artists and poets meet on the last Saturday of each month (from 4pm-6pm) for CONVERSATION with EACH OTHER about ART and POETRY.

Poems inspired by paintings, photographs, or sculptures will be a part of ongoing Saturday afternoon meetings with poet and art historian – Aleksander Najda.

At the foundation of Ekphrasis lies the belief that unique works of art should be approached with uncommon tools of equally expressive power. Many writers have drawn on this power of seeing and we’ll explore as many as possible: Miłosz, St. John Perse, Seferis, Charles Wright, Strand, Bachmann, O’Hara, Zbigniew Herbert, Homer, Katullus, Pindar, Rilke, Auden, Zagajewski, Cavafy, Walcott, and many more… including our own inspirations, whether in poetry or art.

Aleksander Najda is a poet and art historian. He earned his doctoral degree by writing a breakthrough dissertation Apocalypse according to Wasyl Kandinsky. His poetry is almost exclusively focused on ekphrasis providing a unique insight into the inner world of visual arts and music.
