Irish painters to discuss their work, Oct. 14
Posted October 5, 2005; 04:50 p.m.
Irish painters Alice Maher and Dermot Seymour will give an illustrated talk on their work at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14, in the Stewart Film Theater, 185 Nassau St.
Both artists have exhibited widely in Ireland, Europe and the United States.
In addition to her paintings and drawings, Maher, frequently creates works with materials such as rope and hair, focusing on themes of memory and identity.
Seymour is known for his "social realist" approach toward Northern Irish politics. His work frequently involves a juxtaposition of images within the Irish landscape, particularly livestock, and religious and military symbols.
The lecture is sponsored by the Fund for Irish Studies.
