on Friday's show....a special programme recorded recently in Sligo to celebrate Yeats 2015. Chair of Irish Poetry Paula Meehan and poet laureates from around the British Isles - Carol Ann Duffy, Gillian Clarke, Liz Lochhead, Aisling Fahey and Sinead Morrissey - read the work of Yeats (and their own work) before a live audience
The death was announced today, of the Irish painter and architect, Patrick Scott.
This sad news comes on the eve of a major retrospective of his work, due to open tomorrow.
It’s in two parts:
The first is in the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin and the second part, dealing with his later career, is in Carlow’s VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art.
Evelyn O'Rourke is joined by Aidan Dunne, the visual Arts Editor of The Irish Times, and author of a major book on the artist, entitled simply 'Patrick Scott'. Also on the line is Christina Kennedy, Head of Collections at IMMA who curated the exhibition.
