Write On’s Art/Speaks Blends Art, Writing

Poet Francha Barnard will lead two upcoming sessions of Write On, Door County’s free, informal creative lab, Art/Speaks. They’ll provide opportunities for writers of all ages to take inspiration from art and write in any form

One session will be held June 18, 11 am – 12 pm, in the Edgewood Orchard Galleries’ courtyard, 4140 Peninsula Players Road in Fish Creek. Another will be held June 25, 11 am – 12 pm, at the Kress Pavilion, 8745 Church St. in Egg Harbor, and it will take inspiration from the sculptures of Richard Edelman that are on exhibit throughout the village. 

Art/Speaks is also held quarterly at the Margaret Lockwood Gallery, 7 S. 2nd Ave. in Sturgeon Bay, with the next session set for July 9, 11 am – 12 pm; and as each new Edgewood Orchard Galleries exhibit opens.

Seattle writer Janée J. Baugher and local artist Ginnie Cappaert will present a multidisciplinary workshop June 19, 9 am – 2 pm, when they’ll lead participants in both writing and painting and explore the creative possibilities of words and images coming together. Tuition is $90; space is limited to 10 participants.
