This year marks the 30th anniversary of the death of Kathleen Bridle. A renowned and influential artist, her art and teaching inspired generations of young people in Fermanagh. Kathleen Mabel Bridle (affectionately known as ‘Pindi’) was born in Kent, the daughter of an Irish coastguard officer. She studied at the Metropolitan School of Art, Dublin and in 1926 she took up a teaching post in Fermanagh.

Kathleen Bridle encouraged and inspired young students from the Collegiate School, Portora Royal School, Mount Lourdes Grammar School and Enniskillen Technical College. Many of Kathleen Bridle’s pupils went on to develop their own careers as artists, most famously William Scott (1913-1989) and TP Flanagan (1929-2011). This exhibition highlights some of Kathleen Bridle’s work and pays tribute to a prolific painter of watercolours
