All Welcome and No Booking Necessary

Pantomime island is located only in the imagination, it follows in the tradition of fictional, mysterious islands that appear and disappear on the horizon and in folklore. Rosie McGurran searches for stories from the past and present to make sense of the messiness of the human condition.

Rosie McGurran was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and received her degree in Fine Art from the University of Ulster in 1992. She was a member of Queen Street Studios, Belfast, in the 1990s before re-locating to the small village of Roundstone on the west coast of Ireland in 2000 where she still lives and runs a ​gallery and an annual island residency, The Inishlacken Project, for artists from around the world.

​She has curated many exhibitions in Ireland and abroad while receiving awards and bursaries for her own work, for example, she was awarded The Arts Council of Northern Ireland Fellowship to The British School at Rome, The Victor Treacy Award, and The Conor Prize at the Royal Ulster Academy.

All artworks are available to buy.

You can also buy art from this exhibition through the Own Art scheme which gives you an interest-free loan over 10 months (and you still get to take the art home immediately the exhibition ends).
