Details

VIRGINIA CREIGHTON/ NATURE IN LITERATURE AND ART 

“From the Page’s Edge: Water in Literature and Art” is the first in a series of traveling exhibits within the project called "Nature in Literature and Art."  In 2011, "Page's Edge" tours the Northeast, visiting  four venues. Each of nineteen contemporary artists displays a painting  responding to writing on the theme of water, and a passage from a literary source hangs next to his or her painting.   The artwork covers a range of styles from realist to abstract and the choices of literature are diverse.  The intended audience is students and adults.

Venues for the exhibit are: Moravian College in Pennsylvania, Lake Champlain Maritime Museum in Vermont, Albany Institute of History & Art in New York, and William Paterson University in New Jersey.   All exhibits and receptions are open to the public. The ultimate goal of “From the Page’s Edge: Water in Literature and Art” is to entertain viewers and encourage them to look at literature in visual terms.
