    Storytelling Painters and Poets: The Relationships Between Painting and Spoken Word

    When: Saturday, July 10th, 2:00pm - 3:30pm
    Where: Saratoga Arts, 320 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY
    Speakers: poet, Bernadette Mayer, poet, John Yau, painter, Sarah Cain, moderated by John O’Grady

    Authoritative voices have defined poetry and visual art—the “sister arts”—in relation to each other in ways that have even elided their obvious differences. What is gained lost, transformed when shared discourses of art are used for both media? Their supposed similarity is famously characterized in Horace's Ars Poetica by the dictum ‘ut pictura poesis’ ‘as is painting, so is poetry’...Two Poets, a Painter and a Writer have a lively discussion around this topic with some time for questions from the audience.

    This event will be held in-person at Saratoga Arts in the main gallery space. Seating will be provided, registration is required to attend. This event will also be live streamed and be added to our members only accessible library for future viewing. 

    All in person attendees are required to present proof of vaccination against COVID-19 (card or excelsior pass) or negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours. NO EXCEPTIONS - entry denied without for the health and safety of all.
