An exhibition of textile artist Ciara Harrison’s work will be on display in the Prologue Room from 20th of July until 18th August 2016. This exhibition features exquisite embroidered portraits of seven women who shared one destiny: they were all widowed by the events of the Easter Rebellion 1916. Using a remarkable process involving the transfer of charcoal drawings from photographs to cotton organdie, the work includes a portrait of Kathleen Clarke (nee Daly) born in Limerick in 1878, and widow of the rebel leader Thomas Clarke.
The exhibition is on loan with the kind permission of the Little Museum of Dublin. Admission free.
The Hunt Museum invites you to the opening of Shadowed Women Exhibition on Thursday 21st July at 6pm, at The Prologue Room, in The Hunt Museum. The exhibition will be officially opened by writer Marita Conlon-McKenna, author of the best selling novel Rebel Sisters.
All are welcome!
