It's officially National Poetry Month, so let's celebrate metrical compositions, shall we?? The first annual Ekphraestival is a solid way; it was borne from a collab between 25 poets and 26 visual artists. (Ekphrasis—description” in Greek—refers to writing that responds to visual art.) Ekphraestival employs a broader use of the term, though—it will showcase visual art that responds to poetry. Kicking off on April 4, the fest will include three exhibitions and readings across several NW and SE Portland locations, including Soliloquy Fine Arts, The Writers’ Block, Blackfish Gallery, and The Lobby.  by Lindsay Costello
