A Hannah Frank exhibition with a selection of drawings and sculptures.
There was a programme of events/workshops surrounding this exhibition:
Poetry Workshops at the Gallery – The first Hannah Frank Poetry Competition attracted over 500 entires, the winning poems being exhibited at the exhibition alongside the drawings which inspired them. To continue this momentum, we invited poet William Bonar and creative media tutor Catherine Wallace and colleagues into the gallery to run a selection of poetry workshops for adults and children. These workshops were free and were available for adults and children.
Catherine Watt and Routes Into Learning – Catherine Watt will be working with volunteers Avril Graham, Sandra Holmes and Pauline Green. Catherine manages the Routes into Learning project on behalf of John Wheatley College and Routes Out Services. Catherine has an honours degree in media, specialising in Film and Art in addition to a post graduate diploma in screen studies. She uses her experience to support vulnerable women to engage in using a range of creative media. Since the project was established almost six years ago they have held a variety of exhibitions of art and photography, performances of poetry and published the book ‘A rose by any other name…’ to great acclaim in 2006. The project has also won a number of awards. The most recent award was given to volunteer Avril Graham, who won the Overall Regional Learner of the Year Award from Scotland’s Learning Partnership. This group ran two open workshops demonstrating some of the techniques they have used to create their own poetry; they also hosted a closed workshop for some of the women they currently support.
William Bonar from St Mungo’s Mirrorball Poets’ Network – William Bonar’s poetry has been widely published, most recently in Gutter 02 and Anon Seven. His pamphlet, Frostburn Steel, was published in 2004 by Dreadful Night Press. In 2008 he was awarded an MLitt in Creative Writing by Glasgow University. He used to teach English and still works in education. William Bonar ran two workshops; one for schools and one for adults, during the course of this exhibition.
