Event Description

Shadowed Women features exquisite embroidered portraits of seven women who shared one destiny: they were all widowed by the events of the Easter Rebellion 1916. The artistic process involved the transfer of charcoal drawings from photographs to cotton organdie. The results are a haunting portrayal of female heroism.
The exhibition is on loan with the kind permission of the Little Museum of Dublin.
