A new exhibition entitled TS Eliot: Personal Perspectives will open at Edinburgh’s Union Gallery next week, showcasing tribute work by artist collective Group 13. Essayist, publisher, playwright, literary and social critic and “one of the twentieth century’s major poets”, TS Eliot is naturally held in high regard by most fellow artists. He has not only inspired many a writer, but painters, too, often find the power and emotion of his writings to be highly motivational.
It is then perhaps not surprising that the acclaimed Group 13 collective of artists has chosen this important of 20th Century writer as the focal point of their third collaboration. TS Eliot: Personal Perspectives promises to be an innovative and thought-provoking exhibition of new works and will be the first time the collective has exhibited in Edinburgh. Group 13 is a showcase for the many and varied styles of some of Scotland’s most celebrated artists and, as such, this is a must-see exhibition.
Group 13 formed originally to contribute to 2010’s highly acclaimed Kelvingrove Art Gallery exhibition, The River Runs Through It, the Group 13 Artists Collective have gone on to create ‘Glasgow Haiku’ at the Glasgow Art Club.
The exhibition will run from 4th April until the end of the month.
Union Gallery is at 45 Broughton Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3JU, and can be contacted on 0131 556 7707 or via their website.
