Poetry Encounters, a special series of artist-poet, readings and discussions, presented in association with Poetry Ireland to mark Butler Gallery's 80th Anniversary. Join us for these poetry encounters in which artists whose work features in Butler Gallery's 80th Anniversary Collection Exhibition share and exchange insights into their own work with poets. The poets will read from their collections, explore the exhibition and consider how the visual arts have influenced their writing.
