I’m going to have a solo exhibition in The Bourn Vincent Gallery on the campus of Limerick University on the 22nd of March this year – and you’re all invited!
The Gallery is named after the Bourn-Vincent family, who in earlier centuries played a prominent role in the civic life of Limerick City, having contributed six Mayors to the city between 1703 and 1803. I’m told that their extraordinary acts of generosity, though not widely known, have rarely been surpassed and it is appropriate that this Gallery should bear their name.
And it’s a fantastic gallery! It is run by the Visual Arts Office of the University, who also look after several prestigious art collections, including The National Self Portrait Collection of Ireland, The Watercolour Society of Ireland Collection, The Medical Art Collection and of course, the University of Limerick’s own art collection.
