The Willamette Valley PhotoArts Guild and the LBCC Poetry Community are celebrating National Poetry Month in April with an exhibit at the South Santiam Hall Gallery at Linn-Benton Community College, 6500 Pacific Blvd. S.W., Albany.

“Ekphrasis: Photos Speak Out” features 20 pairs of photographs and poems on view from April 1 through May 3.

A reception and book release will be held in the gallery on Wednesday, April 3, from noon to 1 p.m., when the poets will read from their work and be available to sign copies of the exhibit catalog.

In addition to the exhibit, a silent fundraising art auction will be held during the exhibit to benefit The Valley Writers Series, a nonprofit group that sponsors local workshops and readings by prominent authors. The auction items will be on display and open for bidding until April 19, with the final week of bidding continuing on-line at tinyurl.com/vwssaa.

The 19 poets participating in the exhibit are Jeff Fearnside, Chris Risely, Jane White, Eliot Kurfman, Hannah King, Mark Weiss, Jed Wyman, J.D. Mackenzie, Crash and Alison Ruch, all of Corvallis; Ruth Krueger, April Wheeler and Krista Ruck, all of Lebanon; Amy Earls, Karelia Stetz-Waters, Travis Chambers and Robin Havenick, all of Albany; Kiera Eller of Philomath; and Lucette Wood of Springfield.

The 10 participating photographers are Jack Larson, Rich Bergeman, John Morris, Kat Sloma, Craig Hanson, Margie Kinch and Owen Bentley, all of Corvallis; Phil Coleman of Lebanon; Ellen Hamill of Albany; and Walt O’Brien of Eugene.
