Georgia Author and Gwinnett Citizen Columnist, Katie Hart Smith, Invited to Moderate “Painted Sounds” Workshop at the Acworth Cultural Arts Center

The Acworth Cultural Arts Center is hosting a free workshop called “Painted Sounds” devoted to the exploration of the creative process on Sunday, July 23, 2017 at 3PM at the Main Street Gallery, 4815b South Main Street, Acworth, Georgia.

The goal of the “Painted Sounds” workshop is to bring together artists, writers, and musicians to a presentation of wonderful art, stories, and music compositions that inspires new works in new form. Painted Sounds is a program initially developed by the Atlanta Chapter League of American PEN Women for their own members, where writers and musicians interpret one another’s art in their own medium. A painting might be interpreted musically, a poem may be written to a stunning piece of artwork, a short story might be represented in sculpted form. It’s an amazing collaboration of creative power that never fails to excite and inspire each and every one who participates.

Moderated by Katie Hart Smith, author, columnist, and staff correspondent for the Gwinnett Citizen, a panel of PEN Women members will lead off the “Painted Sounds” program and seek to engage local artists, writers and musicians in this creative process. Sunday’s workshop, using as a backdrop the current juried exhibit, “Prelude to a Painted Sound,” will be followed by a similar event at the upcoming 2nd Annual Allatoona Book Fest on Saturday, October 7th at the Roberts Community Center in Downtown Acworth which will feature works inspired by this event.
