The Street Uncoiled
An Exhibition Celebrating Per Mare 200
24th - 27th July 2017
Louise Barrington, Kerrianne Flett, Calum Gilles, Nick Gordon, Mary Grieve, Frances Scott, Sigurd Smith
The artists took as their inspiration an extract from Per Mare: The Stromness Pageant, 1967 by George Mackay Brown.
The street uncoiled like a sailor's rope from north to south
And closes swarmed up the side of the hill
Among gardens and clouds,
And closes stepped down to the harbour
And the nets and whitemaas.
