Madison Art Society announces a Poetry Reading Event with The Guilford Poet's Guild and The Connecticut River Poets

On Wednesday, May 16 at 6:30 PM the Madison Art Society, the Guilford Poet's Guild and for the first time this year The Connecticut River Poets from Old Saybrook will present a very special event.

The Guilford Poets is a group of poets from the shoreline area and Guilford who meet regularly to share poems and promote an appreciation of poetry in the community. The Connecticut River Poets was formed in Old Saybrook by Pat O'Brien.

Poets will read aloud poems they have written about a chosen painting from the 43rd Annual Juried Show being held at the E.C. Scranton Memorial Library, 801 Boston Post Road, Madison, Connecticut. Individual poets choose a piece of art that inspires them to write.  

The poems are sometimes funny or poignant and are read with flair and drama by the poets themselves. The art that inspired the poem is displayed during the reading. The event is free and open to the public. Artist's whose work has been chosen have likened it to winning an award. Come and meet the artists and poets.
