Exhibitions/Previews

Exhibitions and PreviewsA regular feature of StAnza from the start, the festival’s exhibitions have varied considerably over the years but always reference poetry in some way. Ranging from poet/artist collaborations through artist’s books, kinetic poetry, installations, photography and concrete poetry to floating exhibitions on the festival’s Poetry Boat (2004 & 2007), the visual art programme has included artists of the calibre of Will Maclean and Elizabeth Ogilvie and acclaimed poets such as Alec Finlay and Gael Turnbull.
