Art Inspired by Books and Poems
In collaboration with the Belmont Public Library’s ONE BOOK ONE BELMONT
Community Read of “The Library Book” by Susan Orlean
Just as a library
is more than a temple of books,
a book is More Than Words.
Imagination is kindled to life by stories and poems, transported in time and place, provoked into emotion, guided to new knowledge. The Belmont Gallery of Art is asking for art inspired by books and poems for this Fall Exhibit: More Than Words in collaboration with the Belmont Public Library’s ONE BOOK ONE BELMONT community read of “The Library Book” by Susan Orlean.
Share your unique artistic vision inspired by a particular book or poem, or interpret what books mean to you in general. Like a library, the subjects are practically limitless: fiction, non-fiction, science fiction, mystery, historical fiction, history, science, philosophy, literature, short stories, mythology, poetry, drama, modern, old or ancient… and more.
The BGA is asking artists to submit work in a variety of media – painting, collage, mixed media, ceramics, photography, assemblage, fiber art and more – both two dimensional and three dimensional work.
