Farewell 2017 and Farewell Followers!

After nearly six years, Painters and Poets is retiring this blog. It's been a great privilege- more than we can express here- to discover and showcase your work, to share with you the aesthetic pleasures of ekphrastic poetry and the joys of collaborative poem-paintings. If our six-year project has proved anything, it's that nearly every poet is moved by visual art to produce its verbal equivalent and many visual artists integrate poetry into their work. With that in mind, we hope that 2018 is your most exciting and creative year yet.
