On Friday, January 19, 2018, Heights Arts opens Materialized: Seven Artists Working in Metal, a new art installation and on Thursday, February 15, Heights Arts will continue its related gallery talks in support of their exhibitions with Ekphrastacy: Artists Talk + Poets Respond. “Ekphrastacy” is a series of talks where exhibition artists share methods of their work process and much more; it is also where local poets perform new works created in response to selected works in the exhibition–to wit a vivid, dramatic, verbal description of a visual work of art.
