That is why, in conjunction with the Poe Film Festival (a tribute to Poe’s influence on cinema), the Poe Museum of Richmond and the Good Goat Gallery of Ohio have collaborated on “A Poe-tic Tribute,” an exhibit of contemporary Poe-inspired art by a group of international artists opening on September 22 with a special Unhappy Hour at the Poe Museum. Each artist was challenged to make a work of visual art inspired by one of Poe’s poems. The participants include: Alexandra Soury (France) Valency Elise Genis (New Mexico) Ann Lim (California) Lisa Snellings (Oregon) Enzo Marra (England) Sean Kelly (Ohio) Cat the Cat (France) Tom Haney (Georgia) Domenico Scalisi (Italy) Scott Radke (Ohio) Chris Semtner (from Parts Unknown) A. Nancy Cintron (Ohio) Lindsay Stanley (Ohio) Forlorn Dolls (aka Samantha Meyers of Ohio) Ana Luisa Sanchez (Ohio) Mike Bell (New Jersey) Dolldrums (Australia) [caption id="attachment_3368" align="alignright" width="600"]"Deep in Earth" by Scott Radke (USA) "Deep in Earth" by Scott Radke (USA)[/caption] The exhibit continues until January 8 and is included in the price of Poe Museum general admission. All works will be for sale with the proceeds benefiting the Poe Museum and a special art scholarship program started by Victoria Price, daughter of screen legend Vincent Price.
