Art/Speaks is Write On, Door County’s first ekphrasis challenge. In collaboration with Edgewood Orchard Galleries, Write On invites Edgewood visitors to explore the art and write in response to a piece that is moving or inspiring.
Ekphrasis is literary description of, or a commentary on, a visual work of art. Most commonly associated with poetry, any genre can be employed in ekphrastic writing.
Edgewood’s final show of the season opened Sept. 26 and runs through Nov. 1. During that time, write a response in any genre and send them to Write On via email to [email protected] with “Art/Speaks” in the subject line. Writing will be selected and posted on Write On’s website. In addition, each of the artists will receive copies of the writing inspired by their work. Please be sure to include your full name and the name of the artwork that inspired your writing.

The final show of Edgewood’s 2015 season is a benefit for Write On. Ten percent of proceeds on all gallery sales will be donated to Write On. Edgewood Orchard Galleries is located at 4140 Peninsula Players Road in Fish Creek. The gallery is open 10 am to 5 pm daily. Writing supplies will be on hand if needed.
