March's Ekphrastic Poetry Contest




March 7 - March 24


Free and Open to the public

Our March Ekphrastic Poetry Contest is underway! Simply write and submit a poem based on your experience of looking at "Near Allen Gap, Tennessee" by Peg Klinger.  This watercolor is part of a series of paintings inspired by her husband's 2,193-mile hike on the Appalachian Trail. This painting is on display now at BAM and featured here.


Email your submission to bellefontemuseum@gmail.com by March 24th to be considered. The top four poems will be displayed alongside the artwork in our new Poetry Gallery - Stanza, during the month of March.

Happy writing!
