Planetary Poems Exhibition

Thu 4 Jul 6.30pm | FREE Entry

A Visual Arts Exhibition by Sam Bartle
Displayed in the Oak Room
Thursday 4 July to Wednesday 31 July

Poetry & Space combine for this unique exhibition of poems in homage to the Planets in our solar system, and the dwarf planet Pluto (now de-classified as a ‘planet’ since 2006). Use the QR codes on each panel to experience audiovisual recordings of the poems, alongside poetry text, and images of each planet. The series includes a poem for ‘Earth’ itself, set in the context of its celestial neighbours, and the exhibition is thought to be one of the first artistic interpretations to account for the true colour of Neptune (since it was announced on 5th January this year, that the planet is not the deep blue we have come to know, but an extremely pale shade of blue/green).

Anyone who shares a fascination with the stars, space, astronomy, and the wider Cosmos, will enjoy these poetic interpretations of our solar neighbourhood.

Sam Bartle was born in Hull and writes poetry in rhyming verse. His work has received publication in various magazines and journals, including Lothlorien Poetry Journal, Dreich Magazine, and Green Ink Poetry. He has also featured at The High Wolds Poetry Festival and appeared on BBC Radio York’s ‘Upload’ programme. Sam has a website and blogs about his poetry at .

He tweets @bartle_sam and posts on Facebook and Instagram as @poetinverse .

Copy booklets of the poems are available to buy in the Arts Centre

Exhibition funded by East Riding Arts
