Hettie Judah in conversation with Christian Peake & Fabian Peake - In Conversation

Author and critic Hettie Judah leads an in conversation with Christian Peake and Fabian Peake, respectively the granddaughter and son of Maeve Gilmore.

Gilmore’s work was largely autobiographical, with family life a constant subject throughout her practice. Perhaps the most notable of Gilmore’s works are her portraits of her young sons, and depictions of her family’s time on the island of Sark where they lived in the late 1940s; as well as their home in Drayton Gardens, which Gilmore painted with elaborate murals.

This is Gilmore’s first solo institutional exhibition, and almost all of the artist’s paintings have remained in family collections. Nearly 40 years after her death, this event is a special opportunity to learn about Gilmore’s life and practice with those who have stewarded her work.
