On Thursday 15th March at 6pm we will be hosting a music and poetry evening in the gallery. The event is taking place during an exhibition of new prints by Iona Howard. Fenland Poet Laureate 2017 Kate Caoimhe Arthur will be doing a reading of her work accompanied by guitar music by Dominic Howard.
Iona’s work has more recently been informed by a year long collaboration with the Fenland Poet Laureate, Kate Caoimhe Arthur. Howard and Arthur have been working and walking together over the last four seasons in the fen-edge landscape that inspires them both. In repeated journeys around Cottenham and Wicken Fen, and more occasional forays into the deeper Fens, they have shared their practices, and each allowed their work to be in conversation with each other’s work. The process of articulating, to one another, the methods and rhythms of what at some level is instinctive and very private work, has in itself been valuable. Arthur’s poetry is displayed in the gallery amongst Howard’s prints, with the hope that visitors will see a conversation between the works, rather than a strict correlation between a single print and a single poem.
Please join them both between 6-7pm on Thursday 15th March for a reading of the work alongside the prints and an opportunity to meet both artist and poet with their reflections on the process of making their art.
