Crawford Municipal Art Gallery presents an exhibition of selected works from the Yacamini Collection and the Crawford Gallery's Permanent Collection.
The title is a quotation by James Joyce to the Irish painter Tuohy when Joyce was having his sitting for his portrait "Never mind my soul. Just be sure you have my tie right." (Ellman, p.566).
The exhibition explores the relationship between the viewer and the portrait subject and in doing so compares and contrasts the multitude of visual techniques the artist employs to encapsulate, hide or recreate 'the soul' of the sitter.
The Yacamini Collection focuses predominately on Scottish and Irish artists of the twentieth century and includes works by the renowned Scottish artists James Cowie and Charles Hemingway.
Highlights from the Crawford Gallery's Permanent Collection include the unveiling of two newly commissioned portraits of the writer Aidan Higgins by Suzy O'Mullane and the poet Micheal O'Siadhail by Mick O'Dea.
