At Home on the Farm is an LCGA commissioned exhibition by painter, Mary Burke.
The exhibition consists of a series of paintings that reflect the working life of farmers in County Limerick, part of the Golden Vale. Over the past two years, Mary has documented five farms of different scales, with different approaches to how they make their living.
This is not a political diatribe nor is it a romantic view of the Irish landscape, rather it is a raw version of the passion that each of these people have for their farms and their ways of making a livelihood. It also coincides with a time when there are many changes to farming practices with many concerns about how viable the “family-owned” farm model is.
The online programme is live at www.limerickgallerypages.com. This page includes webinars, recorded In-Conversations, Poetry recordings, sound works, guided tours and more - all centred on the themes of Walks & Talks in line with Mary Burkes exhibition of works for At Home On the Farm.
