In celebration of PEC Studio Tour’s 25th Anniversary year, we’ve invited the County’s talented writers and poets to join with the Studio Tour members in an artistic collaboration.

Here’s how it worked – Writers were randomly paired with Artists. Artists submited an image of one of their creations, and the writers composed an ekphrastic response to the art object. In basic terms the Greek term ‘ekphrasis’ means a verbal description or commentary of a visual representation.

The matching works of art and written word were exhibited in the County’s historic Town Halls:

Bloomfield Town Hall, 289 Main Street
Fri July 13 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM *Reception
Sat July 14 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Bloomfield Town Hall, 289 Main Street

Wellington Town Hall, 246 Main Street
Fri Aug 10 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM *Reception
Sat Aug 11 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Wellington Town Hall, 246 Main Street
