Stories at the Park is a series presented by Seanchai Library, which coincides with each of our Art at the Park exhibitions at Holly Kai Park. At each event, members of Seanchai Library will read stories or poems inspired by selected works of our Invited Artists. Each story must be precisely 100 words in length, no more, no less (known as a “drabble”), while poems can be of any form, so long as they do no exceed 100 words.
The October Stories at the Park event took place on Sunday, October 16th, and featured Caledonia Skytower, Trolley Trollop and R. Crap Mariner reading a total of 32 stories and poems they had written after being inspired by the artwork of Wildstar Beaumont, John Brianna, Giovanna Cerise, Anibrm Jung and Inara Pey, which is on display at Holly Kai Park through until October 23rd, 2016.
The authors have graciously given us permission to reprint their works in this blog for those unable to attend the event.
To make things easier, the stories and poems have been split by artist, and each piece is presented with an image of the painting or work which inspired it. In addition, some of the works include an audio recording of the reading for your further enjoyment:
- Stories inspired by the art of Wildstar Beaumont
- Stories inspired by the art of John Brianna
- Stories inspired by the art of Giovanna Cerise
- Stories inspired by the art of Anibrm Jung
- Stories inspired by the art of Inara Pey
Our next Stories at the Park event will be on Sunday, November 20th, featuring stories and poems based on the work of our November artists at Holly Kai Park.
