Penumbra is an exhibition of contemporary painting by eight artists: Sinéad Aldridge, Hannah Casey-Brogan, Susan Connolly, Sarah Dwyer, Fiona Finnegan, Alison Pilkington, Yasmine Robinson and Louise Wallace. The exhibition took place at the F.E. McWilliam gallery 15.02.2020 - 30.05.2020 and brought together artists who are connected by their gender, their associations with the island of Ireland and their commitment to testing the limits of painting. Each artist and their work has been shaped by their individual relationships to place, to Ireland and to Irishness. Ultimately, these artists share a commitment to exploring and expanding the definitions of painting and to engaging in the struggle to create work that is unique, relevant and meaningful.
Louise Wallace was also co-curator alongside Dr Riann Coulter, F.E. McWilliam Gallery. Catalogue Essay was written by Dr Cherie Driver.
