Event Details

Three art organizations, Lamorinda Arts Council, California Writers Club Mt. Diablo Branch and Lamorinda Arts Alliance have collaborated to present an unusual exhibit in the Art Gallery at the Orinda Library entitled Ekphrasis. Ekphrasis is a Greek word meaning writing that describes art; the curators say art can also describe writing. Authors write about visual artwork and visual artists create artwork about writings by authors. Related artwork and writings are paired for display in the art Gallery at the Orinda Library. Questions? Email curator Bill Carmel at ekphrasis@lamorindaarts.org or go to www.lamorindaarts.org/ekphrasis for more information.

In addition to curating two galleries in Orinda with original artwork every month (Art Gallery at the Orinda Gallery & Art Gallery at Wilder), here is a sample of other programs we offer: Arts Ambassadors (K-8 youth), Lamorinda Idol, High School Visual Arts Competition, Art Embraces Words, Art Embraces Music (2022), Art Embraces Poetry (new in 2023), Artify Orinda, and Lamorinda Super Shorts. If you are interested in exhibiting artwork in one of our galleries please apply online HERE.

The mission of the Council is to ignite and sustain artistic expression and appreciation for all ages throughout Lamorinda. If you are interested in visual, performing or literary arts, please join us in keeping the arts alive. We are an engaged group of volunteers and donors who develop and produce events, partner with professional organizations and artists, give financial support and awards, and advocate for a vibrant, local culture of visual, performing, and literary arts.
