Poetry is at the top of Ann Staley’s list

Ann_Staley_250Forty years ago, poet Ann Staley bought her first piece of artwork in Ashland, Oregon. It was a watercolor painting of a tree by Norm Campbell.

Staley and Campbell have maintained a long friendship ever since. Over the next several weeks, the pair will collaborate on art and poetry in a new residency program developed by Sitka’s Island Institute.

Campbell has lived and painted in Sitka for decades. Staley, who now lives in Corvalis, Oregon, has just arrived here. She stopped by recently to talk about how a poet and a painter collaborate. She spoke with KCAW’s Robert Woolsey.

Staley and Campbell will share some of their work 5 PM this Sunday, September 22, at Kettleson Library.


Listen to iFriendly audio of the poem “Siblings.”
