ART FROM SHORT FICTION


At the International Short Story conference students from Arkansas are invited to produce art works based on  some of the participating writers short stories. Two years ago Shelby Watkins did a picture from my story The Sea Saw; this time two artists did line drawings based on my flash/short short story Vincent in the Yellow House.

Sadly, I only managed to photograph the one above by Heidi Gilliom. The exhibition was temporary and when I discovered a second artist had done a pic, I was rushing off to a paper. When I got back, the exhibition had been dismantled. Bummer.

Big thanks to Heidi and the other artist for such great images.

Gorgeous! Very cool idea for an exhibition.

Yes, really good. I wish they produced a catalogue. Too much work, I guess :(

Could there not be a flickr type web page for all the artists to upload pics of their art?

It's a cool thing - I sometimes paint after reading a great book/stories...there must be more exhibitions like that...there should be..

Anyway, what a fab tribute to your work!
