Emily Rose Galvin

Painting & Poetry: An Evening of Spoken Word

LANGA Exhibition Celebration Evening
Thursday 26 January 2023
Chapters Café, Union Square, Keele University
Please join us this evening in Chapters Café to explore the work of poet and visual artist Emily Rose Galvin. During the evening, Emily will perform spoken word pieces and there will also be an open-mic opportunity for anyone wishing to share their own work too. Refreshments will be provided.
The exhibition compromises of paintings and poetry; Langa comes from the old Norse word, meaning 'to desire.' Langa strives to engage the viewer in a dialogue with visual and written artwork, and to examine the relationship of their own desires and longings with their interpretation of the works.
Emily Rose is a poet and visual artist based in Staffordshire. Creating visual pieces predominantly in acrylic and ink, her work concentrates on abstracted landscapes and objects, with a focus on colour and structure that encourage an emotional response and dialogue between the subject and viewer. Emily is a member of the Society of Staffordshire Artists, and currently displays work across Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme.
Similarly creating written work that establishes an emotional connection between poet and reader, Emily was the first female Staffordshire Poet Laureate (2017-19) and Poet in Residence at Lichfield Library (2019-2022). Her work is featured in publications from Popshot Magazine, Yaffle Press, Black Pear Press, Sunday Mornings at the River and Ink Sweat & Tears, and her first collection the dew point was published with Verve Poetry Press in 2021
