‘…..then off, off forth on swing,
As a skate’s heel sweeps smooth on a bow-bend: the hurl and gliding
Rebuffed the big wind. My heart in hiding
Stirred for a bird, - the achieve of; the mastery of the thing!’
‘The Windhover’ Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–89)
Birds have fired the imagination of artists, poets and writers since the beginning of
history, appearing in the earliest cave paintings and in ancient myths and
traditional folktales from around the world.
Potent symbols of war, peace or love, messengers of the Gods, intercessors
between Man and the spirit world, birds can be expressions of ‘otherness’ and yet
are our everyday companions.
Our exhibition celebrates the bird through sculpture, prints and drawings and we
hope that you too will be ‘stirred for a bird’.
The Gallery is open Monday to Friday 10am to 6pm and Saturday 10am to 1pm.
