In Living Memory | An Exhibition of Contemporary Still Life
Oliver Sears Gallery at Emo Court
In association with the Office of Public Works
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Emo Court being bequeathed to the nation, Oliver Sears Gallery is delighted to present an exhibition of contemporary Still Life to mark the inaugural opening of the first floor Gallery Rooms of the house.
This newly conserved grand Georgian space will host a collection of some 60 contemporary works by, among others, Peter Blake, Michael Craig-Martin, David Hockney, Hughie O’Donoghue, Camille Souter, Amelia Stein and Sasha Sykes.
In Living Memory brings a selection of artists and artworks, both national and international, to the midlands for visitors to engage with during the summer months.
Emo Court was once home to a spectacular art collection, assembled over generations by the Dawson-Damer family, Earls of Portarlington. Old Master paintings including works by Van Dyck, Rubens, Breughel, Giorgione and Guido Reni and later works by Angelica Kauffman and Canaletto all hung in the Picture Gallery and throughout the House. When Major Cholmeley Harrison acquired Emo Court in 1969, he furnished the house with his art collection. These artworks were later acquired by the OPW when the house was bequeathed to the nation.
It is against this background and inspired by this history that Oliver Sears Gallery, in association with the OPW, presents the inaugural exhibition of contemporary Still Life artworks at the newly conserved Gallery Rooms at Emo Court.
A catalogue will accompany the exhibition.
In Living Memory runs until 29 September 2019
Education, Learning and Engagment Programme, 13 April -7 July 2019.

Artistic responses to the Irish landscape can take many forms. Artists Caoimhe Kilfeather, Mairead O’hEocha, Niamh O’Malley and Amelia Stein, who work using the distinctive mediums of sculpture, painting, drawing and photography, will be brought together to discuss their relationship with the Irish landscape, and how it informs their art. The panel will be chaired by Donal Maguire, exhibition curator.
Spanning 250 years, Shaping Ireland, Landscapes in Irish Art comprises artworks by 50 artists exploring the relationship between people and the environment.
Encompassing a range of artistic media, from paintings and sculptures to photography and video, this exhibition examines the representation of different land types to reveal the significant role artists have played in visualising aspects of human impact on the shape of the natural world.
