The exhibition is curated by Colman and Marie Dalton who had an art gallery at the Clock House, Mallow in the 1990s and early 2000s. The paintings have been generously loaned by a number of private collectors.

The artists selected have works in many of the major art museums i.e. National Gallery of Ireland, Crawford Museum, Louvre Museum in Paris etc. Some of the
paintings are from the 19 th century but most are from the 20th and 21st centuries.

voluntary contributions during the exhibition.
