For those of you wondering what that is, basically artists make art based on selected poems. Both the artists and the poems are selected by a panel of judges.
I entered as both a poet and artist. The poem I entered was Winter's Grace. The examples of art that I entered were just photos of my (then unfinished) clay tiles.
While my poem wasn't chosen (no surprise, I'm a novice), I was chosen to be an artist in the exhibit (big surprise, I am a novice!).
I just returned from selecting the poem that will be my inspiration. I started crying while reading the poem - it's beautiful. I don't know how I'll translate it to clay, but I had to choose that poem when I read it.
I am really, really, REALLY scared to make art for it. I hope I do it justice.

Or if I don't, that I'll at least land on something soft.
