What the heck does Ekphrastic mean? Wikipedia says “The word ekphrasis, or ecphrasis, comes from the Greek for the description of a work of art produced as a rhetorical exercise, often used in the adjectival form ekphrastic. It is a vivid, often dramatic, verbal description of a visual work of art, either real or imagined.” — This should be interesting!

Port Townsend August 2019 events

Port Townsend is a busy town in the summer. A lot’s happening this August. Here are some highlights: Jazz Port Townsend; Shakespeare in the Park; the hip and now THING music festival at Fort Worden (Aug. 24-25); Olympic Music Festival for classical music lovers; Port Townsend Studio Tour (Aug. 17-18); and Jefferson County Fair (Aug. 9-11).

The Port Townsend Farmers Market is da best (from what I hear). I’ll be heading there to finally check it out Sat., Aug. 10 on my way to the Juror Talk. The Northwind Art Center is on Water Street, where there are lots of interesting shops and places to eat. We always stop into William James Booksellers. They have an excellent, well-organized offering of used books, including art books.

So there are plenty of reasons to get to Port Townsend in August. I hope locals and visitors take time to stop by Northwinds Arts Center to see the Expressions Northwest art show.
