Art in the A.M.
A Performance of Songs, Stories & Paintings
Art in the A.M. is a monthly show featuring visual artists, whose works have inspired readings by RBWG writers, and songs by musician Stuart Vining.
The works of art displayed on this page (scroll down) will serve as the writing prompts instead of a theme or a song, as we typically use at “Night of Songs and Stories.”
If you would like to read, email Maribeth at firstname.lastname@example.org (and tell her which painting you will be using as the inspiration for your 300 word poem, story, memoir excerpt etc.) We will take readers on a first-come first serve basis.
At the event, after the writers have read their pieces the artist will briefly speak about his or her inspiration (we will have the paintings at the event) followed by a song of Stuart’s choosing—also inspired by the painting.
Think of the performance as a ‘three-act play’, with each act consisting of 2–3 writers reading work based on the artwork; the display of the artwork along with discussion of the work by the artist; and performance of a musical selection inspired by the artwork.

Painting is the most beautiful of all arts. In it all sensations are condensed, and contemplating it, everyone can create a story at the will of the imagination–Paul Gauguin
