Critics have likened Virginia-based artist Kris Iden's ethereal prints and mixed media drawings to visual poems. Some of her pieces literally incorporate text while others do not, but the relationship between words and images is a topic she'll explore in a special workshop, Saturday, April 19 from 9 a.m. to noon at Hollins. It's a program offered in conjunction with Iden's spring exhibition at the University's Eleanor D. Wilson Museum, and during the event participants will learn how literature can be a jumping off point for visual art. Details here.
