What happens when the best of the best collaborate? Something truly extraordinary is achieved…a unison passion for the classical past is embraced and reborn…
For her latest project, plein air artist Wendy Artin created 16 original watercolor paintings for Arion Press‘s ninety-sixth publication, Stone from Delphi, a collection of poems with classical themes by Seamus Heaney, selected and presented by Helen Vendler. The watercolors, realized especially for this book and printed at actual size, were inspired by Greek and Roman statues whose subjects appear in Heaney’s writings. The paintings for Stone from Delphi will be on display from November 12th till January 30th at the gallery of Arion Press, 1802 Hays Street, The Presidio, San Francisco, telephone: 415-668-2542.
