Tuesday, February 5, 2013 - 6:30pm - 8:00pm
The Traverse Area District Library is pleased to welcome local artist Eileen Paul Millard and local poet Ann Bardens-McClellan to the Main (Woodmere) Branch for a special art reception and reading from Journey to the Centre on Tuesday, February 5. The reception with begin at 6:30 p.m. in the McGuire Community Room with the reading beginning at 7 p.m. Millard's artwork will be on display at the library throughout the month of February.
Ann Bardens-McClellan and Eileen Paul Millard in their Journey to the Centre have created a conversation between artist and poet. Here the poems never merely extend the artwork and the artwork never illustrates the poems. Each is its own experience and when encountered in tandem a third artwork is created, one that merges two sensibilities, two visions.
Bardens-McClellan and Millard practice ekphrastic art, in which one medium of art relates to another medium by defining and describing its essence and form.
