Word + Image: Filipino American Art as Inspiration

Join us for the panel WORD + IMAGE: Filipino American Art as Inspiration, presented as part of the 4th Filipino American International Book Festival!

San Francisco Public Library
Bridge Learning Studio, 5th Floor
3:05-4:05 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017

Moderators: Eileen Tabios and Janna Añonuevo Langholz

Ekphrasis, typically defined as a literary response to a visual work of art, can be valuable to the work of a writer both as a creative exercise and as the impetus for a complete poem or prose piece. During this session, artists from Filipino American Artist Directory will introduce slides of their art and writers will share their crafted responses.

Panelists include artists Carlo Ricafort, Kimberley Acebo Arteche, Pamela Ybanez, Daniel Ballesteros, and Janna Añonuevo Langholz. Represented writers include Jonel Abellanosa, Aileen Cassinetto, Melinda Luisa de Jesús, Veronica Montes, and Eileen Tabios. Artwork by Jean Vengua also will be featured.

Copies of the first Filipino American Artist Directory will be available for purchase, guest presented by Meritage Press.
