Art & Poetry
This project pairs twelve local visual artists with twelve local poets. Each participant provides an initial piece of work which is then passed on to a member of the other group for inspiration and a new piece is created.
The end result will be twenty-four poems and twenty-four pieces of artwork. Artwork ranges from metal sculptures, blown glass and jewelry to photography, paintings, mixed media, and print work. Poem topics range from personal experiences and nature to love, empowerment, and stream of consciousness. 

Artists involved with this project include:
Amanda Gaastra, Amanda Paffrath, Christopher Sklba, Dee Hutch, Jerry Belland, Jessica Schafer, Maureen Fritchen, Pamela Smiley, Phillip Schultz, Samira Gdisis, Susan Sorenson, and Trenton Olson.

Poets involved with this project include:
Aaron Lundquist, Jean Preston, Jerry Cross, Kelsey Marie Harris, Kelsey Hoff, Kevo Genius, Marcie Eanes, Nick Demske, Nick Ramsey, Peg Rousar-Thompson, Sandy Christensen, and Travis DuPriest.
