Hamilton Gallery’s fifth invited artists exhibition thematically centered around Ireland’s Decade of Commemoration and using a major poem by W B Yeats as a catalyst.

“Nineteen Hundred and Nineteen” features works by 130 artists


I was thrilled to be asked despite the grim themes in the poem. It’s always fascinating how much variety there is in a show like this. The exhibition was opened during the Yeats Summer School in Sligo by the Irish Ambassador to the USA, Mr. Dan Mulhall and travels in the Autumn to the Irish Consulate in New York. More information to come! In the meantime, here is a link to my painting on the Hamilton Gallery website.
