Rowayton Arts Center’s Exphrastic Poetry Experience on Monday, October 28

Join us for an evening of art and writing! The Rowayton Arts Center (RAC) will host a creative writing workshop on Monday, October 28 from 6:30 pm to 8 pm. Norwalk’s Poet Laureate Bill Hayden will lead participants in an Ekphrastic Poetry Experience, which is poetry written about works of art. In this case, the current RAC exhibition, “Autumn Juried Show” will provide inspiration.

Writers of all levels will be given time to preview the artwork in the gallery before choosing one or more pieces to focus on to create poetry. Afterward, the group will gather to share and discuss the drafts. Anyone wanting to further edit their works is encouraged to contact Bill Hayden for additional assistance.

The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call RAC at (203) 866-2744.

RAC celebrates the study, creation and appreciation of the arts through classes, exhibitions and events open to all in the community. For almost 60 years, this nonprofit organization has been a cultural gem in Rowayton, CT. The gallery and art school overlook the scenic Five Mile River at 145 Rowayton Avenue with space for regional artists to exhibit their art and a classroom for workshops and classes at all levels offered to children and adults.
