I finally made it along to Adam’s in Dublin to see this amazing collection of art by some incredibly talented Irish female artists. This large group of artists includes Norah McGuinness, Estella Solomons, Mainie Jellet, Rose Barton, Evie Hone, Sarah Purser, Lily Yeats, Joan Jameson, Grace Gifford and Elizabeth Rivers.
All of the artists were working – painting and illustrating – during the same period in Ireland and were part of a very vibrant art scene.
Many studied at Dublin’s Metropolitan Art School and the breadth and variety of their work really impressed me and made me wonder why we don’t hear more about them!
The exhibition moves to The Ava Gallery in Bangor for August.
