Solo exhibition

Heather McAteer : Momento Mori: The Brontë Pictures

Woodley Library

Following a visit to The Brontë Parsonage & Museum last year, Heather embarked on a series of works which explored the legacy of the Brontës, whose intense, but short lives were filled with creative passion and a love of the nature which surrounded them.
This collection of pictures attempts to reinterpret their monumentality by revealing key moments in their lives through their personal belongings. The work narrates their fascinating story while offering a contemplation on the nature of creativity, death and remembrance.

Woodley Library, Headley Road, Woodley, RG5 4JA

2 - 30 October 2018 | Mondays: 9am - 1pm | Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Fridays: 9am -5pm | Thursdays: 9am - 7pm | Saturdays: 9.30am - 4pm | Sunday: 10.30am - 4pm
