Yeats and the Golden Age of Print

An exhibition of 22 Graphic Studio Dublin artists, based on 11 poems of William Butler Yeats.

Primary Colours is an annual exhibition at Sligo Art Gallery to increase diaogue and interraction within the visual arts programme, to include schools, and the local community.

Given the cultural integration with the Yeats family in Co. Sligo, and given the intrinsic link between fine art print and the written word, specifically through the Yeats' sisters Cuala Press, Sligo Art Gallery felt it appropriate to invite members of Graphic Studio Dublin to respond to the poems of William Butler Yeats. This is particularly appropriate given that 2010 is Graphic Studio Dublin's 50th anniversary, and its original core group of founders included William Butler Yeats' daughter Anne Yeats.

The artists responded to various poems by William Butler Yeats including: Down by the Salley Gardens, When You are Old and Grey, Byzantium, The Cat and the Moon and 'A Man Young and Old' (I First Love, II Human Dignity and III The Mermaid). Each artist has made one work.
