Staff photo by Dan Parker A juried poetry reading, art show and silent auction of art pieces created to reflect the poems will be held at 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 20, at Tim Burdick Photography and Fine Art Gallery, 722 Tarpon St., Suite L.

It is a fundraiser for Project Graduation. Admission is free and open to the public.

Poets and artists, including Port Aransas High School students, were invited to submit samples of their work to a jury panel.

Poets could submit up to three poems, and use of visual imagery was suggested. Poems selected for the show were assigned to an artist who created an original piece of art inspired by the poem.

Artists who wanted to be considered for the show sent photos of their artwork to the jury panel, and those who

were accepted for the show
were assigned a poem to interpret through their artwork.
The interpretive pieces will be
auctioned at the show.
The exhibit and silent auction of the art pieces will feature poets reading their work
and artists discussing how the
poems inspired their art.
All proceeds will be donated to Project Graduation, a
drug- and alcohol-free lock-in
party for Port Aransas High
School seniors, juniors and
their guests on graduation
night.
