CAST is a curated exhibition featuring contemporary artists responding to the remarkable story of pioneering, Portadown born sculptor, Anne Acheson who revolutionised fracture treatment during WW1.

Trina Hobson Belfast based contemporary oil painter, Trina Hobson brings a sensitive, painterly approach to her work, creating emotive images which tell or introduce a story.

Alana Barton Awarded Northern Ireland Young Artist of the Year 2019, Alana Barton’s paintings feature both figurative and abstract elements, sourced from old photographic material, primarily based on children and young people.

Una Burke Crafted from leather strips, award winning Irish artist, Una Burke’s flesh-toned body casts are a direct reference to the support and strapping created by Anne Acheson’s plaster cast. The black body armour is featured in the film by Una Burke, Marie Schuller and Niamh White , based on the idea of prosthetics

Lucy Meagher Lucy Meagher is a ceramic artist working in Dublin, intrigued by the unearthly and sometimes uncanny presence of Victorian dolls and puppets, she creates figures that have their own narratives and personalities.
