Adventurous local literary imprint Burrow Press teams up with the Gallery at Avalon Island for a one-off cross-disciplinary celebration of unseen and unheard views of Florida with Ekphrastic Floridas. Spinning out of Avalon’s current gallery exhibition – the very impressive Roadsides & Skylines show – Ekphrastic Floridas gathers together a crew of local writers to read a piece, each based on art in the Roadsides show. With a roster featuring Iljeen Jo, Amber Norman, Lucianna Chixaro Ramos, and avant-lit vets Steven Garnett and Holly Tavel, it’ll make for a fascinating challenge to match text with the intriguing and evocative visuals of Roadsides, a show that features photography, shadowboxes and everything in between. Whoever is paired with Jacksonville resident Crystal Floyd’s intricate and otherworldly dioramas definitely has their work cut out for them.

7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 8 | The Gallery at Avalon Island, 39 S. Magnolia Ave. | | free
