A Cape Cod Presence in the U.S. Embassy in Ireland
How did it come to be that paintings of scenes of Cape Cod will soon be prominently displayed in the American Ambassador’s official residence in Dublin Ireland?
It appears that by happenstance our new Ambassador to Ireland, Claire Cronin, loves Cape Cod and loves Ann Sullivan’s paintings of Cape Cod life.
Sullivan says it was a complete surprise and an unexpected honor when the Ambassador expressed her desire to have Sullivan’s paintings in the Ambassador’s residence in Dublin.
Now, Sullivan has learned that 7 of her paintings have been selected for the Ambassador’s residence. The paintings will be on loan for approximately three years.
The lot is scheduled to be shipped in September, but until then, the paintings can be viewed through the summer at the Ann Sullivan Gallery in South Yarmouth.
Sullivan and her husband, who was born in Ireland, and their extended family there, look forward to visiting the exhibit, and Sullivan is thrilled that her paintings will be shining a light on Cape Cod through the Embassy’s worldwide window.
