Event description
A series of interviews with artists for our upcoming exhibition on the Irish Garden in September

About this event

Friday, 14 May - Friday, 11 June - As a prelude to two garden exhibitions the Irish Georgian Society is launching in September 2021, we are providing a second opportunity to watch a series of interviews about the Irish Country House Garden that were first launched in January.

The series is being produced for IGS Inc and is proudly sponsored by Hindman, a leading fine art auction house with showrooms across the USA. It begins with an introductory talk covering the history of the Irish Country House Garden from the late 17th century through to the beginning of the 20th century. It is followed by four interviews with prominent Irish women painters in their studios talking about Irish Walled Gardens.

All talks are pre-recorded and will be available to view for 7 days after the dates they are sent out. Booking ends 24 hours before and access details will be sent by email at 3pm on the following days:

14 May - An Introductory Talk with Robert O'Byrne

21 May - In conversation with Lesley Fennell at Burtown House & Gardens, Co. Kildare

28 May - In conversation with Andrea Jameson at Tourin, Co. Waterford

4 June - In conversation with Maria Levinge at her studio in Co. Wexford.

11 June - In conversation with Alison Rosse at Birr Castle, Birr, Co. Offaly

In late May, a further series of talks will be launched which will feature Robert O’Byrne interviewing leading Irish gardeners. Details of these will soon be issued. More information on the exhibitions can be found at: https://www.igs.ie/updates/article/igs-year-of-the-country-house-garden
