Gallery Hours: Thursday–Saturday, 1:00–5:00pm

Poetry Reading: Thursday, June 6, 6:30pm

Arts Center East is hosting the fourth annual “Ekphrastic Extravaganza” exhibit from June 1 through the 29th. There will be a poetry reading on Thursday, June 6 at 6:30pm.

The exhibit is a collaboration between the award-winning student writers of Rockville High School’s Creative Writing Program and the Artist Members of Arts Center East. Each February, the artists send digital images of their work to Victoria Nordlund, the Creative Writing Director at RHS and poet in her own right. Inspired by an image of their own choosing, the students draft and revise their poems throughout the spring. Both the poems and artwork are displayed in the Eureka Gallery and on the ACE website.

Exhibits at Arts Center East are free and open to the public. We are grateful for the support from our community and visitors.
