Irish female artists of the 20th Century
Exhibition of works from private collections by Ireland's leading female artists of the 20th century. Curated by Professor Paul Finucane.
This very special exhibition, curated by medical consultant Professor Paul Finucane, opens in the Jennings Gallery, College of Medicine and Health, Brookfield Health Sciences Complex, UCC on Wednesday 18th June and remains open until 8th September. The exhibition features artworks loaned from a number of private collections and features what are considered the best Irish female artists of the 20th century. Although under similar artistic influences, these women had very individual artistic styles. They escaped the artistic and social restrictions of Ireland and travelled to Europe, in particular Paris, to study art, in contrast to their male colleagues who remained in Ireland and whose art tended to be more formal and conservative. This exhibition is based on the book ‘Journeys through Line and Colour. Forty Irish Women Artists of the 20th Century’ by Professor Paul Finucane and Dr Maria Connolly. The exhibition will open with a Guest Lecture by Professor Finucane and Dr Maria Connolly in Brookfield Health Sciences Complex (G02) at 6pm on Wednesday 18th June, followed by the Opening Reception in the Jennings Gallery. The Jennings Gallery is open to the public Monday-Friday 9-5pm.
