Tracy Sweeney is an award-winning, visual artist based in Straide, Co. Mayo, in the West of Ireland.Her unique, visceral, multi-media works caught the attention of the Mulvey family, based in the US, who commissioned her to create a piece for Ireland's Great Hunger Museum, in Hamden, Connecticut.  The commission was in honour of their grandmother Nancy Colleran, who hailed from Straide and emigrated to Connecticut in the 1920s. The connection with their ancestral home beside Sweeney's studio in Straide was astounding, in addition to being the birthplace of Michael Davitt, founder of the Irish Land League. Sweeney's abstract works are held in major international collections. This is her debut exhibition in the US.
