Artists' Co-op of Mendocino:
ART TO OWN
THIS MONTH we host the exhibit for EKPHRASIS V, the fifth annual collaboration between the Co-op and the California Writers Club of the Mendocino Coast. Ekphrasis, which means "art describing art," features 20 anonymously and randomly paired writers and visual artists (that’s 40 participants total). For 10 pairs, writers have responded to 2-D or 3-D visual art; and for the remaining 10 pairs, visual artists have responded to writings. The exhibit is up Oct 5th through 31st. Participating authors will read their stories, accompanied by a slide show of the visual art, at the Mendocino Writers meeting, on Thursday October 20th at 6 PM in the Mendocinio Hotel Garden Room. Public invited.
