Diana Copperwhite | Reclaiming a Space

Diana Copperwhite, Erin Lawlor, Helen O'Leary, and Dannielle Tegeder

Irish Arts Center 

Jan 29, 2024 – Jun 23, 2024


Four women artists from Ireland and the diaspora explore notions of home, place and displacement, and identity through different media and styles within the practices of abstract art. Representing both the hard-edged and the lyrical, and ranging from oil painting to sculpture, their work shines a light on the genre’s reclamation of physical and cultural spaces that historically have been occupied by more traditional forms within the canon.


This exhibition will feature an artist talk, symposium and reception on Saturday, March 9. Details to come.
