Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is delighted to present Aitiuil, a group exhibition exploring the work of five eminent members of the Royal Hibernian Academy, all of whom have a connection with Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County. The artists, now all senior academicians in their seventies and eighties, include former RHA President Carey Clarke PPRHA; Professor of Painting John Coyle RHA; Professor of Sculpture Imogen Stuart RHA; George Potter RHA; and Honorary member Melanie le Brocquy HRHA.
The exhibition programme, in the Municipal Gallery, dlr LexIcon, will open on Friday 27 March and run until Saturday 9 May 2015 and is curated by Tara Murphy, Director of Solomon Fine Art, Dublin.
The Gallery Learning Programme will offer opportunities for visitors to explore and engage with the artworks on show, through a series of talks and workshops.
Aitiuil will present key early, mid-career and late works from each of the artists’ oeuvres, offering the audience unique and often intimate insights into the lives and creative minds of these five distinguished artists – all of whom have chosen Dun Laoghaire and its environs as a place to settle down and work in.
