Our latest exhibition, Pencil Lines – Edinburgh Makars and Other Scottish Poets, begins on Wednesday, 15 May at the SPL.
We are delighted that artist Joyce Gunn Cairns will be exhibiting her drawings of Scottish poets, including Ron Butlin, Stewart Conn, Christine De Luca, Bashabi Fraser, Magi Gibson, Valerie Gillies, Colin Herd, Tessa Ransford and Alan Spence.
As well as the opportunity to see the portraits and meet the artist there will readings from many of the poets featured. Performers will include Stewart Conn, Christine De Luca, Joy Hendry, Colin Herd and Alan Spence – with more to be announced. John A Sampson, a musician well known for his musical collaborations with poets, will also be performing. This promises to be a a special evening.
