In a one-of-a-kind celebration of National Poetry Month, the Central Coast artists’ group, Fibervision, will be presenting a tangible interpretation of the works from poets of Santa Barbara. The exhibition, From Verse to Visual, will make its inaugural debut at Cabrillo Pavilion Arts Center in Santa Barbara, with a combined reception for poets and artists on Wednesday, April 13, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
In that magical setting overlooking the ocean, poets will offer readings of the poetry that inspired artworks in the uncommonly expressive form of textiles. In Peace and Gratitude, by artist Belinda Hart, is a depiction of Hart’s selected poem, “In Peace and Gratitude” by poet Sojourner Kincaid Rolle.
Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be offered during the reception. Following the exhibit at Cabrillo Pavilion Arts Center, which runs from March 30th through May 22nd, From Verse to Visual will travel for exhibitions in other cities. The exhibit will also include additional works by Fibervision artists, as part of the annual Fibervision “New Views” exhibit.
Docent tours of the exhibit will be offered on April 23rd and May 21st at 10:00 am.
