The exhibition will feature fifty specially commissioned paintings of Walled Gardens by four distinguished artists: Lesley Fennell, Andrea Jameson, Maria Levinge and Alison Rosse.
All four artists are active gardeners and people who understand plants. Alison Rosse and her husband inherited responsibility for one of Ireland's finest demesnes at Birr Castle. Lesley Fennell can take credit for creating a truly lovely garden at Burtown, County Kildare. Together with her two sisters, at Tourin, County Waterford, Andrea Jameson ensures that the walled garden remains as productive as ever, while Maria Levinge, having moved house a few years ago, embarked on establishing a new garden in County Wexford.
This Exhibition and related garden initiatives have been funded through major lead gifts from Susan and Coleman P. Burke. We are tremendously grateful for their support. We also wish to thank all of our American donors who have made these initiatives possible.
Paintings in the exhibition will be available for purchase.
