Judith Parry - The Freeverse Pimpernel

Welcome to Jawspring, the exhibition that is celebrating World Poetry Day on the 21st March by fusing Art and Poetry.

They seek her here they seek her there, Judith Parry your poems are everywhere. She is the Scarlet Pimpernel of poets, a woman who freely exhibits her works in unexpected places around town. She is currently releasing up to 100 postcard sized literary surprises into the wild. As you might know this type of guerrilla interaction is very close to our hearts, especially with a new magnetic street art exhibition around the corner in Bath. Late last year we were fortunate enough to capture Parry and contain her within four walls for the 'Art Jazzed Up' exhibition at The Shaw Gallery in Croydon. We're therefore very excited to pounce* on the lesser spotted Parry haiku and keep it in captivity, well, just until the exhibition finishes on the 24th March and then it will be released back into the public domain to fertilise our minds......

Open petals beckoning

Pollination time

We have printed her poem onto this model sushi and will be exhibiting it at the Village Hall Gallery from the 19th-24th March 2014. If you would like to join us, please send a haiku or poem (less than 80 characters) to me Alban at albanlow@hotmail.com or tweet  @albanart
Full details are on our submit poems page.

All these Sushi Laureates can be found on their designated page.

*No Judith Parrys were harmed in the act of poetry capture.
