for the artists at Bridge St, on their anniversary
The slow, silver heartbreak of another day,
Tarnished reflections in the grey.
Gossamer webs of autumn
spun across branches of our lives,
reflect motes that gather
at hidden things, entwining strings
which disappear in an unexpected gleaming,
revealing new silver dew drops,
as the sun reveals the tendrils
of morning — a new day.
by Barbara Smith
An exhibition to celebrate 25 years of Bridge Street Studios in association with An Tain Arts Centre
Join us for a Facebook live virtual opening night Exhibition Launch and Artist talk on An Tain Arts Centre’s Facebook Page on Thursday 26th November at 7 pm
The “Silver” Exhibition is in collaboration with award-winning poet Barbara Smith who is based in Dundalk. Barbara has published two collections of her work, with her new book ‘Anne Askew on the Kafka Machine’ out soon. Bridge Street Studios have commissioned Barbara to compose a poem solely for this one-off exhibition. The artists have created and interpreted their artworks in response to this poem.
