The intersection of language and visual art with Poet Laureate Lara Gularte

The Firehouse Sessions, led by Lara Gularte, were a series of workshops and poetry readings centered on ekphrasis, the practice of describing visual art in a literary mode. The artwork displayed in Confidence Firehouse Gallery served both as inspiration and as backdrop for these intimate, illuminating dialogues between disparate mediums. Some of the poems that emerged from these workshops were presented to the public at free poetry readings, held in Confidence Firehouse Gallery, amid the art that inspired the poems.
