Thursday, October 4, 2012 at 8:00 p.m., Geof Huth is presenting visual poetry at the Ottawa Art Gallery. This free event is sponsored by the Embassy of the United States, Ottawa, in cooperation with the A B Series and the support of the City of Ottawa and the Ontario Arts Council.
Add one part performance artist, two parts poet and just a pinch of something else and you get Geof Huth, visual poet extraordinaire. Mr. Huth’s visual poetry spans several artistic disciplines as he combines letters, words, colors, sounds, and sometimes live performance or video to poetically express his ideas and experiences. Some of Huth’s poems can be read and enjoyed in a traditional sense, while others must be examined, experienced, and interpreted by the audience without the intervention of any recognizable language.
Mr. Huth will also be meeting with students at Canterbury Art High School during his time in Ottawa.
