About the Museum of Mythological Water Beasts:

The Museum of Mythological Water Beasts is a multi-year project inspired by the River Shannon and the people of Limerick. We began with an open research process, working with local catchment custodians – including artists, boat-builders, historians, and scientists – through a series of events, workshops and field trips about, along and on the river. In 2018, we have returned indoors to develop a series of artistic commissions and exhibition-environments at Ormston House.

Trace by Ann Blake is commissioned as part of the Museum of Mythological Water Beasts kindly supported by the Arts Council of Ireland Visual Art Project Award.
