“WORDS THAT PAINT: The New Hudson Valley School in Poetry and Prose” is a collaborative art experience brought to you by HVCCA and Director Mara Mills. Writers from throughout the region were invited to visit the current exhibition at HVCCA, and then submit short plays or poems inspired by works of art. The resulting works were juried and assembled into this theatrical performance.
Writers include: Donna Barkman, Jo Ann Clark, Jim Dirlam, Barbara Fischer, Ruth D. Handel, Tony Howarth, Deborah Maier, Karen Marie Marmer, MaryAnn McCarra-Fitzpatrick, Alicia Morgan, Loretta Oleck, Susan Schefflein, Marc J. Straus, and Bob Zaslow.
HVCCA provides the backdrop in which the writers read their creations, with professional actors adding their voices for the multi-voice works, in full view of the artwork that inspired the words. The audience will move through the space as the narrative unfolds, adding a dynamic component. This is the fourth collaboration with Director Mara Mills following the successful “Size Matters: Image and Script” (2008), “The Form of Matter” (2009) and “The Ides of March” (2012).
