Ek, what?

Ekphrasis.  From the Greek.  “Out” and “Speak.”  Nothing more than this, — one art form calls to another, converses.  If conversation isn’t community, what is it?

One slice of artistic expression inspires the making of another.  Think onion.  Think kitchen. Think arboretum.  Think library.  Think left brain. Think right brain.  Be celebration.

Now, at herchruch  Ekphrasis is rampant – drumming, liturgical dancing, soul-collaging, music, the visual, poetry, laughter.

Curious?  Come by the AWE Gallery on Saturday, March 23 @ 2PM  for a Gallery Talk & Tour of Collective Artists.  Details under AWE Events.

FYI:  herchurch  — Sunday is always an Ekphrasis celebration @10:30.



Beginnings contain a spec of hope.

Hope is both communal and personal.  Be bold and add the word “peace.”  Fortunate you!  You are entering the online journal San Francisco Peace and Hope (www.sfpeaceandhope.com). Founded and edited by Berkeley artist and peace-maker, Elizabeth (Liz) Hack therein is nothing less than a community of compassionate luminosity and craft.  Read it today.  Review the call for submissions.  Share your gifts.

This is the first of Monday blogs.  I can think of no beginning more hopeful than to thank my friend Liz Hack.

If you missed Liz’s art exhibit at AWE Gallery (unfortunate, you), access her website and marvel at many of the paintings from the show, as well as others (www.elizabethhack.com).

Current AWE Exhibit:  CLIR Annual Art Show through March 31, 2013.  Open Saturday and Sundays Noon – 5 PM.  Not to be missed.  Click on AWE Events for details.

Until next Monday,  peace & poetry,  Kit
