The national touring exhibition, The Amulet, exploring the hidden world of infant loss, was launched at Galway Arts Centre in August, with curator and Galway Arts Centre head of visual art, Maeve Mulrennan, describing the exhibition as “honest, heartbreaking and, due to Marie’s skill as an artist, a space for exploring what words cannot express”. The exhibition continues onto Limerick in September, with a panel discussion event taking place in University Maternity Hospital Limerick, on Thursday 25 September at 6pm, where the artist and bereaved parents will join guest speakers from arts, culture, health and academic perspectives to discuss the artwork, which will be on display in the hospital on Thursday 25 and Friday 26 from 10am to 6pm.
This event is free and all are welcome. Head for the Parent Education Room. Refreshments will be served with musical accompaniment from University of Limerick. For more information please visit: http://amulets.ie and https://www.facebook.com/Artist.M.Brett
