Paisley Museum and Art Gallery is delighted to present the winners of the Joan Eardley Poetry Competition, together with work by Joan Eardley (1921-1963) from the collection to celebrate the artist’s centenary year. The competition was held from May-July 2021 and over 50 poems were received. Huge congratulations to those entrants singled out by the judges. The quality of poems received was excellent, and the judges admired the poems below for their general technicality, approach and response to Eardley’s life and work.
