Joanne the Poet - The Poetry of Joanne M. Clarkson

“Magnified” in Ars Poetica Galleries

My poem “Magnified” has been chosen by two artists as an inspiration for their creative expressions. The poem is displayed during the month of April along with the art it inspired in Rimbert Illustrations Gallery in Bremerton and Front Street Gallery in Poulsbo.

I will be reading my poem as the artist describes their creative process on Sunday, April 14 in Bremerton and Sunday April 21 in Poulsbo.

The competition is sponsored by a group called Ars Poetica in Kitsap county. By the first of the new year, poets are invited to submit 3 poems with a small fee. Artists are then able to select pieces that they believe will help them create new artwork. The results are displayed during National Poetry Month.

I just and absolutely love this concept. More frequently poets participate in Ekphrasis when they write in response to the work of art. It is very rewarding to have the process reversed and have artists respond to the written word. I am so excited to meet the artists that my poem inspired later this month. I know that one created a painting and the other a found item collage.
