Angie Shanahan, a visual artist in the narrative style, will give an illustrated talk on the influence Irish writers have brought to her work in recent years.  As a young graduate, Angie won a Taylor Bequest Award for painting and also a Vision Award adjudicated by James White, former Director of the National Gallery.  In the last year, she has exhibited in selected group shows in London, Sligo, Dublin, Cork, Berlin and New York. 

Angie works out of a studio on Wandesford Quay - the south channel of the River Lee - with the Backwater Artists Group which celebrates its 30th year in 2020. Like the river which weaves its way around the city and into the hearts of city dwellers, the influence of writers such as Derek Mahon, Tim Robinson, William Butler Yeats and William Wall has wound its way into Angie’s work, inspiring in her both an emotional and collaborative response.
