…“But even allowing for a century of progress since, I was astonished at the line-up that curator Orlagh Meegan-Gallagher had managed to assemble (with the help of a shy male donor) for the Carrick show. A who’s who of Irish women artists including Dorothy Cross, Alice Maher, Pauline Bewick, and Anne Madden, it was worthy of Imma, never mind a town of 5,000. Entitled The Blue Veil, it is now open daily at the Civic Offices.” Frank Mc Nally Irish Times
The Blue Veil, an exhibition which opened on the 6th of March this year in Carrickmacross Civic Centre was closed for months during lockdown. Now, with the opening up of the building again, the curator Orlagh Meegan-Gallagher is delighted to announce that the exhibition has been extended until the end of October.
The Blue Veil is a group exhibition including works by Pauline Bewick, Hattie Billingham, Dorothy Cross, Rita Duffy, Theresa Kelly, Alison Laredo, Anne Madden, Alice Maher, Hannah Martin, Orlagh Meegan-Gallagher, Janet Mullarney and Eilis O’Connell and was organized by Orlagh to celebrate International Women’s Day.
The project is supported by the Arts Office, Monaghan County Council and Larry Lamb.
The exhibition will run until the end of October and can be seen during Library opening hours at Carrickmacross Civic Centre
