Fund Raising Art Auction 30th March

Imogen Stuart is one of Ireland’s most respected artists. Her impressive body of work can be found in churches, universities, parks and civic settings throughout the country. She has lived in Sandycove and worked in the same studio for sixty years. Still working at the age of 92, Imogen has designed a stone sculpture for Otranto Park in Sandycove.

The piece will measure some twelve feet in height and weigh more than three tonnes. Triangular in cross section the sculpture curves and tapers as it rises, with figurative carving on the two sides looking out to sea, while on the third face, inscribed in both Irish and English, will be an ancient Irish text carved in raised lettering.

As part of the fundraising activity, there will be an auction of 47 lots from 37 different artists including eleven drawings by Imogen. Ian Whyte, the highly regarded art auctioneer, has kindly offered to conduct the auction, which will be held on 30th March 2020 in the National Maritime Museum, in Dún Laoghaire.
