art inspires poetry

I've been fortunate lately to have viewed some amazing artwork.
I also got to meet the artists,which was an extraordinary experience, especially since they were so down to earth and thrilled that we appreciated their work.  I strongly recommend getting down to Chelsea to see the glass and metal "sculptures" of Michael Glancy at the Friedman Gallery and to see the black on black paintings of Karen Gunderson at The Clamp(on) Gallery.

The following was inspired by the work of the same name by Asheville artist Joyce Thornburg:


Heavy Load
                        based on a painting of the same name by Joyce Thornburg
 
 
Edged in primary-colored shawls
nameless
and featureless
pale brown faces
 
third world women
 
arms and hands
held high

arched outward
into handles
 
that balance
shouldered burdens
of stone
