Sligo Stoker Society was delighted to help with the virtual launch of this phenomenal art exhibition which was curated by the Hamilton Gallery. The exhibition draws together an eclectic cohort of artists from Ireland and Northern Ireland, in a celebration of macabre and gothic responses to the “Dracula” author in his part-ancestral town of Sligo.
Bram Stokers mother Charlotte Mathilda Blake Thornley (1818–1901) was raised in Sligo, and, so the story goes, recollections of her tales of a cholera epidemic striking the county, played a part in the emergence of the Dracula story.
Artists from the dark side – Mike Bunn, Patrick Colhoun, Graham Gingles, Lisa Gingles, Cara Gordon, Paula Pohli, Gerard Scott and Eleanor Swan.
The exhibition is on at the Hamilton Gallery, 4 Castle Street, Sligo. If you can’t get into see it you can view it online here: https://hamiltongallery.ie/bram-stoker-selected-artists
