Impressions and Portraits of W.B. Yeats

Jun 13th, 2015 Aug 29th, 2015

  Impressions and Portraits of W. B. Yeats by Invited Artists

The Hamilton Gallery invited over 50 of Ireland’s leading and emerging contemporary visual artists to create a 20cm x 20cm canvas inspired by the life and writings of W.B. Yeats.

The overwhelming response we received has resulted in this exhibition 'Impressions and Portraits of W.B. Yeats', a compelling, contemporary response by the visual artists of Ireland to the work of one of our literary giants for his 150th birthday.

The exhibition was opened by Professor Margaret Mills Harper, Director of the Yeats International Summer School.

The Hamilton Gallery invite to view 'Of this Place' contemporary visual reflections from Yeats country by a group of 8 Sligo artists.

Acknowledging the wealth of inspiration afforded to William Butler Yeats by the landscape of County Sligo, each member of this collective of eight Sligo-based artists individually explores the nature of the relationship between their own work and these same environs.

The exhibition makes for an interesting exploration of the many planes of landscape, from the geographical to the emotional to the metaphysical. The group bring together their own findings to mark a collective appreciation of these many geographies, presenting a homage of sorts to the landscape of Sligo.

With each artist's experience as individual as their own practice, this body of work is a visual meditation upon the manifold ways that our surrounding landscape is absorbed, seeping into our creative consciousness.

Writer Brian Leyden has liaised with the artists, stimulating a dialogue and locating the work in its imaginative terrain for the exhibitions accompanying catalogue.

Hamilton Gallery - Thursday 30th July at 6pm

The Hamilton Gallery will host a discussion about the current exhibition, 'Of This Place', featuring eight Sligo-based artists who have focused their attention on their own creative relationship with the landscape that so inspired Yeats.

The discussion will be led by writer Brian Leyden who visited each of the artists in their studios as they put together a body of work for exhibition in Sligo and Madrid. This event is kindly supported by Sligo Arts Service
