Poetica draws on the written word

"There are things known, and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception".

Words by Aldous Huxley have inspired Steve Barnes' work, now showing in the new exhibition, Poetica, at Blue Knob Hall Gallery & Cafe.

The pieces in this show are the artists' interpretation of a poem, a line or verse from a song, or the artists' own words.

As well as these pieces displayed, the powerful presence of Gito von Schlippe's sculptural works and Paul Roguszka's fine hand contribute to a long artistic tradition of inspiration from the written word.

This has resulted in a unique visual expression. Poetica, on show at Blue Knob Hall Gallery, will be on view until August 26.
