This section is about Sarah’s poetry-art exhibition An Eyeful of Words which took place in the gallery at Droitwich Library, Worcestershire, UK, from Wednesday, June 6 to Saturday, June 30, 2012.

More of Sarah’s art and photography, including more recent pieces of hybrid poetry-art and combining photography and poetry, can be found in the photography section.

The combined-medium ‘An Eyeful of Words’ exhibition by Droitwich poet Sarah James aimed at using art and photography to open up poetry to wider audience.

The photos and canvases, many of which celebrate nature and the local surroundings, were chosen to interact with their accompanying poems and offer an alternate way into the word experience.

You can now enjoy some of these photos and poems and carry a mini-poetry-art gallery around in your pocket or create your own artistic pocket poems thanks to two free phone apps: Pocket Gallery: Pic a Poem and Pic Pocket a Poem available to download at google android playstore.
