Living Portraits is a project by artist Rachel Macmanus who visited St. Joseph’s over a period in 2018 as part of a Clare Arts Office project to make portraits of the residents. The residents themselves are not definable as a group, as of course they are individuals with different experiences and personalities. As they sat for their portraits, the artist chatted with them, hearing sad stories from someone’s past, talking to homesick individuals, or on other occasions laughing and joking with her sitter all day. She worked in pencil drawing, a medium recognizable in both historical and contemporary art, and which reflects the past and present lives of the St. Joseph’s residents well.

An Artist’s Talk on the project will take place on Friday 17th May at 8.30pm in glór’s Studio space. Free of charge and all welcome.

Rachel Macmanus is an artist living and working in Ennis co Clare. She works through drawing, painting and performance and is completing a fine art masters with OCA.

This exhibition features as part of Bealtaine Festival
