Adrienne Geoghegan


Dunamaise Arts Centre presents

An exhhibition of children's book illustrations




17th October - 3rd November 2012

Dunamaise Arts Centre is delighted to present an exhibition of work by Illustrator Adrienne Geoghegan from Wednesday 17th October to Saturday 3rd November 2012.

Painting, collage and assemblage are Adrienne Geoghegan’s passions. She studied illustration at Kingston University in the UK, where she developed her ‘beloved shadow boxes’. Adrienne was awarded a 1st class BA(hons) however, surprisingly, her first paid work came through a children’s book agent – and subsequently, Adrienne was shortlisted for the McMillan prize in Children’s Picture Books.

Her work has been translated into many languages, and Adrienne continues to create ideas for picture books. She also illustrated articles for many London publishers, including The Guardian and the Economist. In 1994 Adrienne returned to Dublin, to a shared studio space, The Fifty-Fifty off Liffey Street.

Adrienne lectured in various colleges and freelanced for various national and international newspapers and publications and regularly runs workshops.

She is currently working in her home studio in Stoneybatter, Dublin making her box art assemblages, painting, illustrating and writing stories.

All are welcome to visit our gallery and Adrienne Geoghegan’s exhibition will continue until 3rd November 2012.

The Dunamaise gallery is open daily Tuesday – Saturday 9.30am – 5.30pm. Guided visits to the gallery by school groups or organisations can be arranged by contacting the Dunamaise Box office on 057 866 3355.
