Poets Respond to Art at Northwind Gallery’s Ekphrastic Event

Our Northwind Art Gallery in Port Townsend hosts a cool event every August. Poets are invited into the gallery to choose a piece of art and write about it. Participating poets then get to share their verse in front of the painting or sculpture during a special reading. Due to Covid, this year the poems are read by their authors online on the Northwind YouTube page.

I am so excited to be part of this event! My poem is entitled “Pandora 2021” and is in response to Margaret Woodcock’s collage, “Remains of Pandora’s Box.” You can experience it at:
