‘Mind has Mountains’, an exhibition of work by four artists in response the poetry of Geraldine Mitchell, opened in the Green Fuse Gallery, Westport, during the recent Rolling Sun Book Festival.
Mitchell’s latest collection, entitled ‘Mountains for Breakfast’, is the poet’s third. Speaking to The Mayo News after its release, she explained its broad themes: “The poems take a close look at mortality and the process of grief, but also at our extraordinary resilience, as human beings, in the face of all the big, inevitable losses.
“Like the poetry by others that interests and moves me, I hope this collection also invokes the mystery and wonder of our precarious existence in outer space, through close observation of a natural world we too often take for granted.”   
‘Mind has Mountains’ runs until December 2.
