Interpretations opens to standing room only crowd

Tim and TracyThe Interpretations exhibit at the Columbia Art League opened Saturday, August 24, and the confluence of written and visual word filled the hall. One of my pleasures was meeting my secret assigned partner, Tracy Eichhorn, the artist whose art I interpreted and who in turn interpreted mine. The exhibit runs through November 1.

My assignment was to interpret her original piece with a written composition. Her oil painting of a comet slicing the night sky was the subject of my following poem:


Deep calls to deepArt Piece for Poetry and Art Project
as green blends to blue
and the edge that joins
is the edge that cuts
creating and holding
until the uninvited
makes its flashy entrance
disrupts the plan
tears away the veil
and then, without notice
takes leave, walks off stage
leaving nothing behind
except that lonely mark
where reverie danced
no more than a day

(Tim Carson, April 2013)
