A Way With Words

When I was a curator, I discovered that many artists had a hard time naming their exhibits or their artwork. They could be the most creative individuals with their medium and subject matter, but words, that wasn’t their thing. No. 1 or painting 2 just doesn’t cut it when you print out a list of the works for potential buyers to read.

Our current artist, Kulbir Singh Bhalla, not only knows how to title a piece but he does it with humor. Here are a few examples from the exhibit that I believe will bring a chuckle to the reader:

Kulbir Singh Bhalla “An Artist Sublime”

Shall We Dance

An Artist Sublime

 

As a poet, I weave

Words to achieve

A poem which conveys

What my soul says:

Savor beauty –

That’s my duty.

 

As a photographer, I capture

My moment of rapture;

The beauty I see

Comes from Thee;

The beauty I behold

Is my silver and gold.

 

As an engineer, I think

Of my invisible link

With my maker,

With my caretaker:

Beyond space and time,

An artist sublime.

 

Come and meet Kulbir on July 6 from 5-7pm
