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 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 our artists are Susan Dubsky, Karen Daye-Hutchinson, Patricia Curran-Mulligan and Molly Douthit.
Mollie Douthit (b. 1986, USA) Douthit currently resides in North Dakota, and spends time in Ireland annually.
“Knowledge is a powerful tool to ward off ignorance. The painting of a woman reading is her own collection of knowledge, similar to the purpose of collecting reeds to build St. Brigid’s cross to ward off fire. The title references the sound of fire, and the Grimm’s tale Rumpelstiltskin.”
