For A Thousand Words, Vol. 3, the Gallery at CCBC Essex is featuring regional visual artists to inspire local writers to create new work. Each artist invited to participate in the gallery exhibit incorporates words into their artwork, exploring text as a means of commentary and communication, as well as a visual art form.
During the exhibition, we will be collecting submissions of poetry or prose of a thousand words or less that were inspired by the artwork in the show. A jury will then choose the best pieces to be featured in a digital literary magazine.
We’ll celebrate the works with a Reading Night held in the gallery. All are welcome to create and apply for the magazine, including students, employees, and members of the community. Please feel free to start getting inspired by looking at this online version of the exhibition. The writings will be due by June 13th.
