Painting Meets Poetry - Event Fully Booked

Time/Date - Sat 9 Feb 2013 14:00

Afternoon of poetry readings, inspired by John Luke and John Hewitt.

Luke Portrait -John HewittFrom the 1930s to the 1970s, the poet John Hewitt and the painter John Luke created an image of Northern Ireland as a region with a uniquely modern identity.  Affectionately known as ‘Ulster’s Craftsman Poet’ and ‘Ulster’s Craftsman Painter’ the story of their friendship is also, in many ways, the story of literature and the visual arts in Ulster.

This afternoon of poetry readings, in association with The John Hewitt Society, will feature  leading local poet Michael Longley (9th February), supported by an emerging talent.
