About this event

Joan Eardley is one of Scotland’s best loved artists and has inspired poets from all over the world. This special event will feature readings from poets and writers responding to and celebrating her work.

An artist of intensity and deep formal sensitivity, the work of Joan Eardley resonates with themes of social conscience, ecological awareness, materiality of paint, compulsion and the everyday. As Edwin Morgan’s poem ‘Flood Tide’ suggests, Eardley’s work is full of tension, full of passion, evocative of elemental, aesthetic and emotional turbulence and attunement to social inequalities.

Come along to the Hunterian Art Gallery to hear some of the poems from ‘All Becomes Art’, edited by Colin Herd and Sam Small and see the current exhibition ‘Celebrating Joan Eardley (1921 – 1963)’ – Exhibition runs until 8 May, 2022.
