Yeats Poetry and Place
2 June to 11 June 2015 | Opening Tuesday 2 June
The writing of WB Yeats, Ireland’s most celebrated poet, continues to inspire and influence a world-wide readership while artists have always found a rich vein to be mined in the breadth and beauty of his work. To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of WB Yeats, the Hyde Bridge gallery is giving its annual small works exhibition a Yeats focus. From an open call, artists were asked to respond to any aspect of Yeats’ writing or the Sligo landscape which so inspired the poet. The response has been outstanding with work coming in from all corners of Ireland as well as the UK and USA. There have been submissions in a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture and print. The resulting exhibition is testimony to the continued interest and influence of Yeats.
