Hamilton Gallery countdown to our St Brigid’s Day exhibition at 12 Star Gallery, Europe House London, is underway.
The exhibition will open to the public from January 23rd and run until February 1st, St Brigid’s Day.
In the run up to our opening night in London we will bring you a daily blog with a selection of the 90 works by Irish women artists that will be shown at the exhibition.
We will include interviews and insights from the artists involved as well as other news and developments relating to events at the 12 Star Gallery in London which will occur in compliment to the exhibition.
Today’s blog features works by Elizabeth Cope, Michelle Boyle, Diane Copperwhite and Sara Cunningham-Bell. We include the poem “Sally Anne” by Leland Bardwell.
Leland Bardwell spent the last 25 years of her life living in north County Sligo. She died in 2016. Her poem St Brigid’s Day 1989 was circulated to the 90 women artists participating as the catalyst / theme for the exhibition.
