Southwest Festival of the Written Word - Artist Talk

  • Light Art Space 209 W. Broadway St. Silver City, NM 88061 (map)

Fine art photographers Patrick O’Brien and Cyd Peroni will attend the Southwest Festival of the Written Word to talk about the 18-month collaboration that became “Geology of Spirit,” an interdisciplinary exhibition combining poetry and photography. They’ll provide candid insights into how they found the two award-winning poets (Rosemarie Dombrowski and Lois Roma-Deeley) and how their relationships changed over time.

For anyone thinking about undertaking a collaboration of visual and written arts, the pair will reveal not only their inspirations, but the decisions that ultimately created a cohesive body of work. They’ll cover:

- Developing and refining the overall theme
- Considering space and audience interaction
- Creating a strong presence for the poems
- Navigating four individual personalities and visions
