Winter Bloom

Winter Bloom was an art and literature event held in Hastings, East Sussex in December 2017.

It was organised and curated by Lucy who invited two other visual artists to create work in response to texts from Joyce's Ulysses chosen by her. Their works were shown together with Lucy's Ulysses and the deep feminine series of drawings and alongside large prints of the Ulysses texts. There were also readings and discussions.

Coastal Currents

Lucy showcased some new work at open studio events as part of Coastal Currents in 2014 and 2016. Coastal Currents is an annual arts festival in East Sussex.

She showed new prints inspired by the History House series and new charcoal drawings, which are part of the Embodiment series - broadly exploring recurring themes around family life and her artistic practice.

London Irish Centre exhibition

Landscapes from the History House was exhibited at the London Irish Centre from November 2013 to January 2014. The exhibition was opened with a presentation by the Lucy, readings by poet Kieran Furey and a short recital of specially selected Irish music by Lesley Dawes accompanied by Alistair Dawes and a speech by  Councillor Sally Mulready.

Longford exhibition

Selected paintings and prints from Landscapes from the History House were shown at the Atrium Gallery in Longford, Ireland, in June 2013. This was an important experience for Lucy giving form and purpose to this very local collaboration with poet Kieran Furey, near to its place of origin.

Further Down the Line exhibitions

Paintings from the Further Down the Line series were first exhibited at the Atrium Gallery in 2005 in Longford, Ireland, and as a part of Approachings an exhibition at Roscommon Arts Centre, Roscommon, Ireland in 2012.
