Intro Text 

The Arts Office, in association with AIB, were delighted to present this exhibition of work by women artists from the AIB Art Collection. The exhibition was specially selected for the Municipal Gallery by a group of women from Women4Women Network dlr who worked with artist/ curator Claire Halpin.

From September 2017 the group met regularly to research the Collection, artists and artworks and the result was this exhibition 'and the Women voted'.  The group selected 40 artworks with a variety of media and styles, including photography, print, painting and three-dimensional works.  Featuring work by Jackie Nickerson, Elizabeth Cope, Dorothy Cross, Sarah Walker, Amelia Stein and many others.
