Female artists are less well known than their male counterparts. This series of talks aims to redress this balance and give their works recognition. The talks examine the background, lives and works of women who created art during the late nineteenth or early twentieth centuries. The artists featured used various artistic techniques and either lived or exhibited in Belfast.
The talks can be taken as a single session on one of the artists, or you can hear them all as a series over six weeks.
As my research continues more artists will be added to the list.
