Heirlooms by Ruth McDonnell

Heirlooms Foxford Woollen Mills, Co. Mayo. Daily until 22 August

 

 

In 2014 Ruth McDonnell was awarded a Fellowship at Ballinglen Arts Foundation, Co. Mayo.  While there, her interest in the art and science of textiles prompted her to revisit  Foxford Woollen Mills and to recall, with nostalgia and delight, her love for Foxford’s famous blankets.

 

She was invited to exhibit at the Mills and these paintings are her response.  They pursue an enduring theme in her work, elevating and celebrating the ordinary and the everyday.  This exhibition acknowledges the powerful, elemental and evocative significance of the blanket in our culture.
