Visual Poetry and Color

Visuality has always been a part of the world of poetry and poetic meaning has always been a part of visual art. This exhibition explores the zone between these two fields. Working on wooden panels instead of sheets of paper this exhibition encourages the artistic approach to poetics and many works incorporate the use of collage - a favored medium of the Museum's Archives.

This thematic, international exhibition was the brain child of New York artist Willie Marlow and first held in Troy, New York in late 2023 at The Arts Center of the Capital Region. The works contributed for the show were intended to become a part of the Ontological Museum Archives with the intention of ongoing future exhibitions.

For this exhibition at Ferrari Gallery in Dallas, we have invited additional artists to contribute works for the show. The contributing poet/artists (over 50 from across the US and Europe) are all well established and respected leaders and members of a variety of intertwining, international creative enclaves.

Show is on view Saturday, July 27th through Friday, September 20th. All proceeds from events support the ongoing exhibition tour for the museum. Tickets are non-refundable but are transferrable. Reserve seats for the opening night, July 27th with artist workshops available.
