A collaboration of poetry and visual art
Coalesce features twenty Orange County-based artists: ten poets and ten visual artists. Created and curated by husband and wife team Max and Morrow Dowdle, the selected artists were matched in pairs, with each poet creating a poem based on a visual work by their partner, and each visual artist creating a work based on a poem. The resulting exhibit will feature 20 works of visual art paired with 20 poems.
All visual works will be for sale. In addition, broadsides (posters featuring each poem paired with its corresponding artwork) will be available for purchase.
