An initiative from Roscommon Arts Officer Mary Mullins has seen visual artists submit works which will be written about by poets. A final selection of ten images has been decided upon with one of them being David j. from the Black Hole Studio.
His work is a photographic print taken in Palermo, Sicily and is described as capturing the wind as it blows in from the sea, but for me it has a lot more intrigue than that and am very curious to see what the selected author will write.
All images will be on display in the Library, King House, Boyle, Co. Roscommon from now until July 7th when it will be moved to the Civic Offices, Roscommon Town where it will be displayed until Culture Night, September 22nd where art and poetry will be brought together as part of the Culture Night programme.
We will definitely keep you informed with the progress of the event and the poem that has derived from the image pictured here.
