"Shades of Infinite Sound" is a collaborative fine art photography and poetry exhibition, which will present an interplay of an abstract photography series by artist Naomi Onaga, with poems selected from the Frank Bette Center for the Arts / Alameda Island Poets Art And Poetry Happening 2015.
Shot with small point and shoot cameras and not digitally manipulated, Naomi Onaga's award-winning fine art photography series "Shades of Infinite Song" reveals evocative, lyrical glimpses of the natural world.
In July and August 2015, the Alameda Island Poets and the Frank Bette Center for the Arts invited poets to submit poems related to the photographs as part of the Art and Poetry Happening 2015, an ekphrastic* visual art and poetry event. Twelve poems from twelve poets were selected as companions to the photographs to be shown at the exhibition.
The authors of selected poems are: Jack Chang, Sharon Coleman, Cathy Dana, Masami Fukuzumi, Rafael JesÃºs GonzÃ¡lez, Persephone Hintlian, Kit Kennedy, Julia Park Tracey, Bernadette Perez, Vince Storti, Emmanuel Williams and Robert Williams. The poets will read the poems at the opening reception, which will also launch the book with the photographs and poems. All poems submitted during Art & Poetry Happening 2015 will be published on a website on October 2nd, and be available for view at the exhibition.
