Series explores literary and visual arts

Meridian, the literary magazine produced by U.Va.'s MFA Program in Creative Writing, is sponsoring a series of programs examining the connection between the literary and visual arts. Its spring issue features "Art and the Lyric Moment," with poetry by U.Va. English professor Gregory Orr and paintings of nationally acclaimed artist Trisha Orr. An exhibit of their works is on display through April 30 in the Iron Gate Study Gallery of the Bayly Art Museum. In conjunction with the exhibit, the museum will host a panel discussion on "The Lyric Moment in Painting and Poetry" on April 27 at 7:30 p.m. in Campbell Hall, room 160. Meridian's poetry editor, Kevin McFadden, will moderate. Panelists will include Trisha and Gregory Orr, poet Lisa Russ Spaar, who is also director of U.Va.'s Creative Writing program, and professor and museum curator Stuart Downs of James Madison University. For details, call 924-6675.
