A Presentation by
Three Irish Women Artists
Our May meeting via Zoom will be a visit from Ireland by three Irish women artists: Niamh McCann, Annemarie Ní Churreáin, and Michelle Moloney King.
Niamh McCann is a Dublin-based visual artist who has a diverse and playful practice in sculpture, installation, painting, and video. Her commissions include Bile Buadha (Tree of Power), a large-scale outdoors sculptural work, and Pavilion/Mother’s Lament, an outdoors sculptural work.
Annemarie Ní Churreáin is a poet from the Donegal Gaeltacht and is fluent in Irish. Her publications include Bloodroot (Doire Press, 2017) and Town (The Salvage Press, 2018). Ní Churreáin grew up in Donegal in a place called Cnoc Na Naomh. She was educated at the Oscar Wilde Centre at Trinity College, Dublin. In addition to her writing practice, she is a panelist on the Writers in Irish Prisons Scheme.
Michelle Moloney King is an experimental poet and editor of Beir Bua Journal. She has a degree in computer science, post grad in education, and is a master hypnotherapist. She states: “My work is informed by play, the relationships of form/shape/semantic within the page, of identity and what it means to be unique, the plural happenings of life. And a longing to find the ultimate truth or get closure in a world of no logic and absurdity.”
This event is free and open to the public, but we will gladly accept donations to help fund future programs!
