Jean Massereene (1883-1937), wife of the 12th Viscount Massereene, was the last Viscountess to reside at Antrim Castle, the fire of 1922 bringing to an end its role as the official seat of the Massereenes. A forgotten leader of the interwar era and famous for her beauty, ghost-hunting, and political causes, this retrospective draws on archived photographs, letters and newspaper articles to exhibit the many facets of her character: philanthropist, militant, spiritualist, fashion icon, and socialite.

THE SPIRITUAL JOURNEY of a WEST COUNTRY ARTIST

Sat 25 June - Sun 25 August 2pm - 4pm

ORIEL GALLERY

In England there is the smallest of National Parks called Exmoor, and this is where my journey began. At the age of nine, roaming with my little spaniel, I recreated the beauty I saw with photographs and oil paint. Colour and faith became my comfort, celebration, restoration and Hope. My paintings and the poetry I write are inspired by The Romantics, especially J.M.W. Turner who also painted on Exmoor, and have been exhibited in New York, London and Florence as well as in my gallery in the Somerset village of Porlock.
