The Poems: Gallery Prints

This collection, a collaboration between Les Wheeler and Sheena, was published by Lochlands in 2004. It contains poems and verse suggested by works in Aberdeen Art Gallery, and was written while the authors were conducting writing workshops there.
David Atherton, the Creative Links Officer for Aberdeenshire Council, worked closely with Les and Sheena in his former role as Education Officer at the Gallery. In his foreword to Gallery Prints he comments: 'Les and Sheena have spent many hours over the last few years composing their own responses to the displayed artefacts. These responses, works in their own right, have now been collated and form a remarkable anthology of literature that reflects admirably the original intentions of the artists whilst at the same time imbuing them with their own flavour of wit, insight and sophistication.'
