Winter is grinding on forever.
As the weather continues to dip below freezing at least a couple of times a week, we’ve been on the lookout for cosy activities that don’t involve dodging hailstones and brown puddle water.
The clever folk at The Crawford Art Gallery were obviously thinking the same thing; they’ve announced a Friends Tea & Tour taking in the new Mise Éire exhibition on Friday, March 6th, 2020.
Dr Michael Waldron. Assistant Curator of Collections & Special Projects at Crawford Art Gallery, will lead everyone on a special curatorial tour of the exhibition, which addresses key questions that have emerged from independence and partition such as ‘what is a modern republic and how does it account for violence, censorship, inequality, or exclusion?’
The exhibition showcases beloved and familiar works – including John Lavery’s The Red Rose, Seán Keating’s Men of the South, Muriel Brandt’s The Breadline, 1916, and Rita Duffy’s Segregation – alongside those by Mary Swanzy, May Guinness, Louis le Brocquy, Rita Donagh, Jack. B Yeats and Regina Carbayo.
Afterwards, you can enjoy a warm cup of tea or coffee in the gorgeous gallery Library.
The tour begins at 11:30am at The Crawford Art Gallery on Emmet Place in Cork City and admission is €5. Third Level students go free with a valid ID.
