Vibha Pankaj and Sarah Longley NEW WORKS

I’m delighted to present this exhibition of new works by Vibha Pankaj and Sarah Longley ARUA. It’s a very great pleasure to welcome Sarah back to the Junor Gallery, also to welcome an artist new to the gallery, Vibha, whose works I know you’ll enjoy.

As always, both of these artists’ works have a close relationship with the best of contemporary poetry. Vibha’s artworks accompanied Bashabi Fraser’s poetry collection, ‘Patient Dignity‘. Sarah’s artworks include the original illustrations for her father Michael Longley’s poetry collections inspired by Homer and Ovid, Homer’s Octopus and Metamorphoses as well as artworks which in turn have inspired poetry from her father.

Both Bashabi Fraser and Michael Longley will read some of their poetry at the opening celebration on 27 May, at 3:00pm, to which you are warmly invited.   Then join us for a very special event, a poetry reading with Michael Longley on Saturday 28 May, in the Gallery Upstairs @ Innes, at 2:00pm – prior booking for this event is essential. Please email me at info@junorgallery.scot to secure your place.

I’m greatly looking forward to welcoming you back to the gallery during this first exhibition in St Andrews post-lockdown. (We were also busy at the London Art Fair in January 2021 and at COP26 in Glasgow in Nov. ’21.) Please note the new location, in the Gallery Upstairs at Innes.
