Riverbank Arts Centre and Kildare County Council Library Service
Invite you to the opening of
Kathleen Lonsdale
By Maeve Clancy
On Saturday 25 March, 2pm
With Special Guest Stephen Lonsdale

Artist Maeve Clancy presents the working life of Newbridge-born scientist Kathleen Lonsdale (1903-1971) through an immersive cut paper installation. The paper is combined with drawings, lighting and animation designed to take the visitor out of their world and into the extraordinary mind of Kathleen Lonsdale. The installation will allow audiences to follow this pioneer’s thought process, discoveries and scientific process, while looking at Lonsdale’s education, working life and achievements in science.

In addition to the exhibition, Maeve Clancy will create a graphic novel charting the remarkable life and achievements of Kathleen Lonsdale. This will be available free from Riverbank Arts Centre, or through Kildare County Council Library Service.
