Claremorris Gallery





ARTIST-WIFE is an exhibition of four painters; Rachel Coyne, Cecilia Danell, Sara Foust and Mary Ronayne. The four artists are showing in Claremorris Gallery for the first time. The term ‘artist-wife’ has been used by arts writers and critics for many years and continues to be used by some writers today. There is no equivalent term (such as ‘artist-husband’) to refer to male artists who are married to artists. Implicit in the term is the notion of the female artist being wife first, artist second. Beyond that, the term reflects an attitude prevalent in contemporary art that sees women as the lesser artists, heavily borne out not only in the global art market but also in their radically disproportionate representation in museums.
