(Adonna Allen reading a winning entry during 2022 Awards Celebration.)

THE PAINTED WORDS – A Visual Writing Event
Thursday, July 20 | 5:30 p.m. at Steamboat Art Museum

Formerly known as “Ekphrasis”, the event has a new name, yet the same spirited challenge to writers to share their creative talents for this unique competition and celebration of the written word and the visual arts. Based on the current exhibition, artists of all ages are invited to submit one work, prose or poetry, up to 750 words inspired by a painting or sculpture from the current exhibition T.D. Kelsey and Julie Oriet: Coming Full Circle.
Deadline for entry is July 1, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. 

The Painted Words is supported by Ski Town Media and Off The Beaten Path Bookstore
