George Victor du Noyer:
Images of Ireland

Thursday 30 November 2017
6pm – 7pm


Free / All Welcome / No Booking Required


An introduction to the artist and his life, and a focus on his scientific drawings. Led by Petra Coffey Co-Curator and Nigel Monaghan, Keeper, National Museum of Ireland.

In 1845, the newly established Geological Survey Ireland (GSI) began a hugely ambitious project to map the entire island, in the process documenting geographical, geological, archaeological and historical sites.

George Du Noyer worked as a surveyor, travelling by foot and on horseback in all weather; producing an extraordinary record of the landscape he encountered from Malin to Mizen Head, creating a resource of interest to art lovers, geologists, botanists, archaeologists and historians alike.

Eileen Hutton, Inside Out Hive, 2014

Eileen Hutton
is an artist whose work is both environmentally based and formally beautiful; sculptures and woven forms made collaboratively with bees and birds and microscopic investigations of pupae and decomposition. At the heart of her work is the notion of reciprocity – of fair and mutually beneficial exchange between the natural environment and humans.
