IAHC TO PRESENT IMAGES OF NORTHERN IRELAND IN PHOTOGRAPHY
EXHIBITApril 15 to May 14

The Irish American Heritage Center is proud to present the
photography of Irish photographer Lynn Gordon-Mc Shane this spring at
the Irish American Heritage Center. Her exhibit, Darkness Visible
runs from April 15 through May 14.
McShane resides in North Aurora and has lived in Illinois since
immigrating to the United States in 1999 from Belfast, Ireland. Her
passion for photography began in her early teens while living among
the troubled streets of Belfast, Northern Ireland. McShane was born
and raised in “The Village”, a staunchly Protestant and working class
enclave of Belfast. The images are designed to give the viewer an
insight into the Ulster conflict through murals painted on houses
from traditionally Catholic or Protestant communities, expressing
their Irish or British identities.
McShane is a graduate of the College of DuPage, where she graduated
with high honors from its Photography Program.
Darkness Visible runs from April 15 through May 14 on Saturdays and
Sundays from 1-5pm and during the week by appointment.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. There will be an opening
night reception in the art gallery on April 21 from 6pm to 8pm.
For more information on the exhibit, call the IAHC at 773-282-7035,
ext. 10.
