As this coming year’s StAnza Poetry Festival programme has been launched, we’re delighted to offer for sale limited edition digital prints of 9 poets by Alan Vest, an exhibitor at 2018’s festival.
You may remember that the run-up to the past festival happened amidst gales and snow! We feared that Alan’s original portrait drawings would not make it to Fife from his base in the NE of England and as a standby had a single digital print made of each of the 9 drawings of poets to use in case the worst happened. Fortunately it didn’t and despite the dire weather, the drawings (and Alan!) made it to St Andrews and his exhibition ‘My Drawing Day‘ took place as planned.
Each drawing is printed on heavy, white, 140gsm card in full colour. Featured are Alan’s portraits of poets Simon Armitage, Louis de Bernières, John Burnside, Helen Dunmore, Nick Laird, Kei Miller, Daljit Nagra, Jacob Polley and Lemn Sissay. The cost is £15 per print with free postage & packing.
Proceeds from the sale of these prints will be going to help support the wonderful StAnza Poetry Festival.
