“The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. The most you can do is live inside that hope, running down its hallways, touching the walls on both sides.” –
This year’s Artemis Journal features our guest writer, Ron Smith with several poems and today’s post highlights, Virgin & Child with Monkey, in which he used an engraving by Albrecht Durer, c 1498 to inspire his Ekphrastic Poem. (Ekphrastic poetry is a poem inspired by a work of art).
This post contains our 2016 distinguished guest artist, Betty Branch. Our mission at Artemis is to foster excellence in the arts and literature by presenting distinguished artists and writers, as a forum for many contributors to debut their work.
Artemis is pleased to present the photograph “The Beauty of Simplicity” by William Cates, (published in Artemis 2016) and an essay by Cara Ellen Modisett, “From Interstate 81” (published in Artemis 2014).
