Artist Reception with Prartho Sereno: Thursday, January 13, 5PM on Zoom
Join Prartho Sereno, watercolorist/poet, Poet Laureate of Marin County (2015-17), as she shares her “painted poems” during her virtual art reception. This online event, organized by the Dance Palace Art Committee, will feature a conversation with the artist discussing several pieces, followed by a Q&A session. Prartho Sereno, watercolorist/ poet, Poet Laureate of Marin County (2015-17), is author of 4 prizewinning poetry collections, including her illustrated gift book Causing a Stir: The Secret Lives & Loves of Kitchen Utensils (2007 IPPY). Her watercolors have been featured on various book & CD covers, including anthologies, journals, and her own creations.
This current show grew out of an Inspirational Pandemic Round Robin, where artists invited friends to post one painting each day for 21 days. Prartho’s response to the challenge was to pair one of her poems with each of the 21 paintings she posted. The result was something like a new art form: an intimate conversation between colors and words, each form deepening the other.
