From the sketchbook of Katrine Lyck, StAnza’s 2020/21 artist in residence

Danish artist, Katrine Lyck came on board as our artist in residence for StAnza 2020/21. You may have noticed her in Parliament Hall and elsewhere around the festival last March, with her paintbox and sketchpad. We’re delighted to have selected prints from Katherine Lyck’s sketchbook on show. These pages were made back when we could still move freely and even shake hands. She gathered impressions from the beautiful city of St Andrews as well as live painting the poetry readings using liquid inks. The live paintings of the poets hopefully express those emotions created by reading your own poetry out loud, and the paintings of the city hopefully reflect a poetic and dreamy view of it.


Please note that live viewing of the exhibition depends on, and will be managed to comply with, Covid-19 regulations on social distancing in place in Fife in March 2021, and requires pre-booking for individuals or household groups. Please book your slot on the museum’s website by clicking here.
