Arts Center East (Vernon) Annual Ekphrastic Extravaganza's a link to the annual Ekphrastic Extravaganza Vernon Poet Laureate Emerita Pegi Deitz Shea has been coordinating at Arts Center East (ACE) for three years together with Rockville High School's Creative Writing Program run by poet Vicky Nordlund.

Each year, Artist members of ACE send images to Vicky's program whose members are free to choose whichever image stirs them. They work on their poems for months, and then the poems are framed and exhibited alongside the works of art.
