Poetry Café Exhibitions

Throughout the year, a lively programme of art exhibitions inspired by poetry and literature.

CURRENT EXHIBITION 'Drawn to Poetry – A Visual Response' Drawings & Paintings by Tom Hogan, 16 Jun - 16 Aug 2014

Tom Hogan’s deft, expressive drawings are produced with an eye to economy and spontaneity, and an emphasis on speed. Many of the drawings were produced from among the crowd at readings, slams and workshops organised by the Poetry Society, the Poetry School, Apples and Snakes and others, and feature recognisable figures from the contemporary poetry scene. Tom has also drawn in bars, soup kitchens, skate parks, dance studios and at political demos.

Tom Hogan studied at Chelsea College of Art and Coventry School of Art. He lived for many years in Spain, following a residency in the Catalan Pyrenees. His drawings and paintings have been widely exhibited, most recently at Lauderdale House, London, and Marcs Casas, Barcelona.
