Lake Country Art Gallery curator Wanda Lock said the artwork will cover a diverse range of outdoor settings.

“Waite’s artwork will be from where his property is located along Commonage Road in Lake Country,” said Lock. “Earl’s artwork will be from her travels in New Brunswick, Ontario and even Mexico.”

The title of the exhibition comes from a Greek word, ekphrasis, referring to a description of a piece of art. An ekphrastic poem is a vivid description of a scene or, more commonly, a work of art, according to the exhibition notes. Through the imaginative act of narrating and reflecting on the “action” of a painting or sculpture, the poet may amplify and expand its meaning.

The show is open until March 29, and there will be an artist’s talk on March 7 from 2 to 3 p.m.
