Artists and writers gather for the annual Verbal-Visual event on Saturday, Oct. 1, 6 p.m. at Brooks Market. The event is sponsored by the Lewistown Writers Group.

The banquet marks the end of a several month long process in which writers pen poems and short stories on a theme, and artists, working from the writers’ pieces, create drawings, paintings or sculptures.

This year the theme was changes. The resulting works of art and the written word are on display at Brooks Market now. On Saturday their creators gather for a banquet meal and to share thoughts about the creative process.

Tickets are still available from Peg Crees or at the Spotted Horse Gallery. The event is open to the public.
