The Hamilton Gallery invite you to view 'Of this Place' - contemporary visual reflections from Yeats country an exhibition 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.

Mr. Yeats and Us

Mr Yeats and Us

We both admire the work of W.B. Yeats, his use of language, his eloquence and the imagery in his poems. While one should not underestimate the importance of this imagery, however, and the many ways that one might use or respond to it, we have both found ourselves intrigued by other aspects of the man; his relationship with his family, his more esoteric pursuits and his extraordinary interest in spiritualism and the occult. We are also curious as to how, given his nationalist inclination, he rationalised his romantic, 'Celtic Twilight' view of Ireland with the reality of the country at that time. We hope that we can tease out an alternative dimension to the life of Mr Yeats, thereby complementing the more traditional view.
