Broadside Gallery

Bridge to Japan Poetry Broadside Gallery

Presented by the Portsmouth NH Poet Laureate Program
After a year of exploring Japanese poetry and art forms as a community, we held a poetry broadside contest. The final judging was performed by poet and translator Patrick Donnelly. Winning entries were awarded cash prizes and will be gifted to Portsmouth’s sister city, Nichinan, Japan.
There were few rules imposed on the poets and artists. Our objective remained building bridges through poetry. We asked only that the submission reflect a Japanese influence in some way, and we encouraged collaboration. The broadside could be designed and printed on a computer, by letterpress, or as a hand-made monoprint.
All entries are exhibited  below. Click on each image for more information about the artists, and to enlarge. We hope you enjoy your visit to the gallery.

I attended the live event and was wowed. First rate. It is great to be able to look at the Broadsides close up. Thx for posting. A meaningful event that will stand the test of time. This is off the subject, but a new Japanese Restaurant opened in Wolfeboro. I hear it is great. Blessed change from pizza:)
