On Sunday, August 4th, 2019 marked the opening of “Paired Expressions: Visual and Lyrical Art,” a collaboration between artists and writers from the Shreveport Writers Club and the Shreveport Art Club.
Shreveport Writers Club members were tasked with sending poetry in to Shreveport Art Club members. The visual artists created artwork inspired by the poems. In turn, the visual artists then asked the writers to respond to their art pieces.
The resulting “paired expressions” are on display through August 23rd at the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum, 3015 Greenwood Rd in Shreveport Louisiana.
Many thanks to the Shreveport Art Club for helping to make this exciting exhibit happen! Thanks to all the writers and visual artists for their contributions. There wouldn’t be a show without you!
