“Late Summer Rabbit Hunting”

Posted on • Words by • Art by

Collaborators’ Q&A: Stephen Scott Whitaker: A lot of my recent work is sound-centered, inspired by snatches of hums or whistled tunes heard as a child, a grandfather’s mumblings, or a choral abstraction of syllables. Artist Sara Tabbert: I know the goal of Broadsided for the artist is not to be directly illustrative, but in this case I couldn’t shake the image of the rabbit’s start, that realization on the part of the game that something is happening.

Poet Stephen Scott Whitaker (@SScottWhitaker) is a member of National Book Critics Circle, managing editor for The Broadkill Review, and the author of three chapbooks.  Artist Sara Tabbert works with carved wood, both as prints and as relief panels. Her studio is in her hometown of Fairbanks, Alaska.

“River Jubilee”

Posted on • Words by • Art by

Artist Sara Tabbert:  I have rarely been taken so directly by a poem to a personal experience. When I read it, I was back a few years ago biking the Natchez Trace Parkway, at the reservoir just outside of Jackson, Mississippi… Poet Chanda Feldman:…The visual art extends the poem by focusing on the woods as a kind of rising and closing curtain on the action of gathering up the fish.

Collaborators: Poet Chanda Feldman is the author of Approaching the Fields, forthcoming from LSU Press in 2018. Artist Sara Tabbert works with carved wood, both as prints and as relief panels.
