Previous Temporary Exhibition: Maggie Glover: ‘Painter of Honest Portraits’
Opened Friday 5th August 2016
Margaret Glover was a contemporary artist and peace activist who through her work, combined
her passions of peace and art to create a fascinating socio-historical record of peace activism. Maggie covered various meetings, peace vigils conferences, anti-war protests throughout her life, and these are depicted through her artwork.
Following on from a successful exhibition showcasing Maggie’s work in 2014, entitled ‘Images of Peace’, the new exhibition featured artwork already held in The Peace Museum Collection, but also included newly acquired objects from Maggie’s personal records. This included a ‘behind the scenes’ look at her artistic process, through documents and photographs from her archive. We hope to showcase this collection in the future.
With thanks to the Glover family.
