VISUAL ART Friday 1st December - Saturday 13th January
It’s here again! The Linenhall’s ever-popular biennial celebration of the visual arts in Mayo makes a welcome return. And this year it’s in two venues, the Linenhall Arts Centre and Ballina Arts Centre. The show will be selected by Catherine Marshall. Catherine is a noted art historian and curator.
Open to artists from or living in Mayo over the age of 18, the show presents a cornucopia of work in all manner of media and offers a fascinating snapshot of the breadth of arts practice in the county. And with something for all tastes (and prices), this might just be the ideal opportunity to find that elusive and unique Christmas gift…
Official Opening on Friday 1st December: Linenhall Arts Centre @ 6.00pm; Ballina Arts Centre @ 8.00pm. All welcome.
NB: A FREE bus will be provided on the night; booking is ESSENTIAL (through the Linenhall Arts Centre ONLY) and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Bus generously sponsored by Michael
Moran Bus Hire.
VISUAL ART: FOYER 4th October 2017 - 30th January 2018
TheCabinet of Wonders#5 is unveiled in the Foyer of the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar, featuringworks byErin de Burca, Belinda Deutinger, David Flynn,Terri Mitchell,Mary Morris, Susie Quinn and Benita Stoney.
The Cabinet of Wonders is an ongoing project that takes its inspiration from the fashion for Cabinets of Curiosities, which were popular from Renaissance times until the mid-1800s. Inspired by the eclectic approach of the original collector-curators, it presents a range of works mined from the creative imagination of a selection of contemporary visual artists, that will hopefully intrigue and engage the passing viewer.Cabinet of Wonders #5takes books as its theme, as a response to Mayo’s Wild Atlantic Words Literary Festival and the Linenhall’s RoolaBoola Children’s Arts Festival.
Cabinet of Wonders #5 will run from the 4th October 2017 to the 30th January 2018
