On Tuesday 17th. June Charles Bainbridge will be coming to the Camden Centre to give a talk entitled Self-portraits in New York: the poetry of Frank o’Hara. It’s a long time since we had a talk about poetry rather than poets reading, so this will make an interesting change and should prove informative and interesting.
Frank O’Hara was a dynamic leader of the New York School of poets. O’Hara’s poetry engages with the worlds of music, dance, and painting. His style is vaired, and includes everyday conversations and notes about New York advertising signs. He was both poet and art critic, creator and intellectual.
On Tuesday 15th. July, members of our society have been invited to give a reading as part of a month-long event at Mascalls Art Gallery in Paddock Wood. The exhibition is Discovering Palmer’s Kent and concerns the work of Samuel Palmer, Graham Sutherland and Paul Drury. Further details can be found at http://www.mascallsgallery.org
Hope to see you there!
