The LiterARTure Project - where poetry meets art!

Another suggestion Hilda and Marcus had for successful blogging was to invite guest bloggers; this entry is by courtesy of Jane Milner-Barry.

The fruits of collaboration between members of Artsite and of Swindon's Bluegate Poets are on show at the Literarture exhibition at Artsite this week. 
 At open evenings on 15 and 16 May, the artist-and-poet teams read their poems and explained their work. 
 Here are some photos of the Tuesday event:

  Jill Sharp's poem "pumpkin pie" was accompanied by a series of glowing abstracts by Bev Greig, which can be seen in the photo with Teresa Davey and Alex Coppock - Bunce.

 Mo Needham produced brilliant poetic counterparts to Adam Crosland's alarming paintings.

  Angels at Coleshill by Jane Milner-Barry.

   Dee Levy invites visitors to rearrange this romantic assemblage on the theme of her travels on the Silk Road.  John Richardson's poems are displayed in the trunk.

   Teresa Davey and Alex Coppock-Bunce worked on the theme of change, loss and acceptance.
  Andy Barber and Paul August Walters described a world sinking under a tide of rubbish.
The exhibition is open from 11.00 to 4.00 until Saturday 19 May.   
You will be able to see the exhibition at the Promotion Evening for Open Studios which runs from 7.30-9.30pm
