Imagistic: Seven Writers, Seven Artists, Seven New Stories

September 9, 7:30-10 pm

Imagistic is a non-profit organization based in the UK, inviting writers to  respond to work by visual artist.  The seven invited writers each choose an image and then responds with a piece of flash fiction of up to 1,000 words – a translation from the language of image into the language of words. For the first Imagistic in Washington, D.C., seven writers are responding to images by seven artists:

Leslie Pietrzyk, writing from work by Keith Morrison
Kyle Dargan / Larry Spaid
Paula Whyman / Angela Bartram
David Gewanter / Dove Bradshaw
Janet Passehl / Alyssa Salomon
Carole Burns / Janet Passehl
Rhian Edwards / Paul Edwards

Curated by Carole Burns and Paul Edwards, Imagistic was begun in 2012 as part of the UK’s National Flash Fiction Day. Some of the images chosen provide a clear narrative hook, a sense of place, a moment in time or an action interrupted.  Others are more obscure – through a glass darkly.

Join us at 7:30 p.m. on Friday 9 September, when the stories will be read while the images that inspired them are projected.

 

 

LIFE DRAWING

Every Monday 
6-9 p.m.
Drop-in (based on availability): Member $10/ Non-Member $15

We are not holding classes during the month of August due to large sculptures in the space and will resume on September 12th. 

The Life Drawing series is an independent figure drawing class that allows students to work from a nude model in your choice of mediums. While skill level is varied, there is no immediate instruction allowing each student to practice their drawing skills at their own pace. The Life Drawing series at Hillyer Art Space is the perfect opportunity to practice your skills and independently work with access to a live model.

While easels, chairs and artistic ambiance are provided by Hillyer, artists are required to bring their own drawing materials. Space will be limited to 30 attendees. Walk-ins are welcome to join if there are seats available.

Interested in modeling? Contact Paul Pietsch at  pietsch_paul@yahoo.com . We are grateful to Paul for his volunteer support of our life drawing series.
