Upcoming Group Show: Eggs & Butter
Gallery: glór, Ennis. Co Clare
Date: March 2021
In March 2021 glór will bring together three formidable visual artists from Clare, Dublin, and Belfast to produce a project that’s all about women’s strength.
The project’s title, Eggs & Butter, references ‘Eggs and Butter money’, a popular means of financial independence for women in rural areas until the mid-20th century. The women would stash this money away for an emergency, giving them financial power to equals their responsibilities. The artists Emma Brennan, Emily Waszak and Rachel Macmanus will contribute to the show. Rachel Macmanus’ work will take the form of concept-led observational drawings that deal with questions of women’s strength in the context of contemporary everyday life in Clare, with a focus on women who live in rural areas. The work will be created as a dynamic, “live” reaction-based representation, continuing to grow during March 2021.
