'Alloway 432', a major retrospective exhibition of the paintings, prints, and drawings of Ann Marie Gilmore, ended its three week run at the Summerhall Galleries in Edinburgh, Scotland on Saturday 18 March 2017.
At a closing reception for family and friends, the artist's brother, Professor Bill Gilmore, reflected on the event, saying:
"This was a wonderful opportunity for the Scottish public to get better acquainted with the range and diversity of Ann Marie’s work, including 'Alloway 432', the painting which lent its name to the exhibition".
"I'm delighted that so many of her original artworks from the family archive have found new homes in Scotland, the country where she spent her formative years and trained as an artist. Ann Marie herself would be particularly delighted that Elyse (pictured below), which was her favourite piece, has found a permanent home."
"The family was also very touched by how many people contributed generously to ECNO, the brain tumour charity we chose to support because Ann Marie died from an aggressive tumour in 2006 at the early age of 58. We're delighted to report that we've raised over £1500 for this good cause which will support brain cancer research in Scotland".
