About “Impressions and Portraits of W.B. Yeats”
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 the gallery received has resulted in this exhibition, Impressions and Portraits of W.B. Yeats. It is 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 will be opened by Prof. Margaret Mills Harper, Acting Head of the School of Languages, Literature, Culture and Communication at Limerick University and the current Director of the Yeats International Summer School.
