ARS POETICA: Where Poetry Meets Art

 Paula Gill
Every year for the past 5 years, local galleries and poets have celebrated Ars Poetica, an event in which the poets of the West Sound submit their poems to a jury panel who select the best to send on to the artists of the region for interpretation. When the art is finished we hold readings to get together, hear the poems, study the art and talk it all over.

This year there will be poetry readings:
In Bremerton at Collective Visions and Toro Lounge,
In Poulsbo at Front Street Gallery and the Poulsbohemian Coffeehouse, and
In Bainbridge Island at BIMA and at San Carlos Grill. We invite you to join us.

Here's more information on dates, locations, and times of art shows and poetry readings.

Bremerton High School
Annual Spring Art Show


A French flea market is typically announced by a sign proclaiming 'Bricolage' which means officially a ' construction or creation from a diverse range of available things.'  
Bremerton High School art students bring fresh perspectives in producing art in a diverse collection in mediums of their own invention, a bricolage, and give us thereby a window on their lives. Come to CVG and experience the future.

Collective Visions Gallery, 331 Pacific Avenue, Bremerton.
The Olympic College Clay Club will present a slide show and talk by Darroll Clark on the subject "Silicone Clay."
Silicone Clay was developed by Darroll Clark while he was getting his Masters of Fine Art in Ceramics at the University of Puget Sound. The material he created is like rubber while in its greenware state but the silicone transforms during the firing leaving the finished piece rigid porcelain clay. Silicone clay is so pliable while in its green state that it can be knitted or tied into knots. That flexibility allows ceramic artists new forms of expression not attainable with regular clay.
