THE ART PORTFOLIO
READ OUR LATEST ‘WORDS + ART’ POEM
On August 2, The Poartry Project participated as a juried reader in the Summer Words + Art event at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston via livestream. We read our new original poem, “wall of 12”, in response to the Cary Leibowitz retrospective exhibit currently on display.
NEW TREE-INSPIRED POEM FROM THE POARTRY PROJECT |
‘PINE OVER CLIFF’
Words + Art founder, Mary Wemple, created an exhibit entitled, ‘Clean Cut’, as her thesis for her MFA in Studio Art. She invited poets to submit poems inspired by the experience of planting a tree (planted especially for this occasion). These poems are currently hung in the gallery with her art at Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. The Poartry Project designed and planted a small Japanese-inspired garden that includes 7 new trees, so we chose to write about the little Dixie Ponderosa Pine for Mary’s project in ‘Pine Over Cliff’.
A NEW ILLUSTRATED POEM FROM THE POARTRY PROJECT
As part of the 2018 June Week of World Cooperation, we created an illustrated poem on sharing ‘what is wisdom to me?’ Despite the depth of the question, the illustrations bring a spirit of wisdom that we thought resonated with the playful, youthful vibe of I Love Energy, our affiliated project and space for kids to explore energy, so you can find it there. The poem shares how we experience wisdom through the process of making art.
WHAT IS POARTRY?
“Poartry” is the sharing and fostering – through the power of words, visuals and collaboration – of the next frontier of our shared story and great adventure of evolving together and the wonder that is humanity’s natural state. This next frontier is waking up to and engaging with the emerging reality of the “something more” that so many lives sense – the living world of energy behind and inclusive of the outer form of physical life. This world of energy has ever shaped and influenced all world happenings and personal affairs, and as humanity has now reached the point in our shared path of evolving together, the world of energy and its stewards are responding by externalizing their presence. “Poartry” wakes up the spiritual imagination and sparks energetic stewardship so that the world of wonder beyond what is currently known and experienced with the physical senses can be perceived and actively brought to life for more magical living in synch with the greater world and existence we are all part of. Words and visuals literally build worlds. It is our hope and aim that the world built here is found to be beautiful, magical, boundless and meaningful, and that visitors will come to realize or deepen understanding that we are all here together on Earth as citizens of the world of energy “on mission” to help unfold the wonders of the universe and the place, purpose and plans of all lives living within it.
The Poartry Project is especially dedicated to fostering the spark of spiritual imagination and energetic stewardship with children, who already so naturally sense and know that energy is real, through collaboration with I Love Energy, a special online space for young lives and the young at heart to play in the magical world of energy.
