I have produced documentaries, written articles, presented programmes, trained volunteers, done newsreading, and made tea with a number of publications and radio stations in the mid-west of Ireland.
This blog survived without a purpose for a long time, but is now primarily centred on various happenings around Limerick, primarily music/arts based. Nothing too fancy, and don't expect razor-sharp analysis...For the most part, it'll be info. It will occasionally deviate from that.
The busy folks at Limerick Printmakers have announced a jam-packed Members Winter Exhibition that will run for almost a month, starting next week.
The ninth year of such going on sees a plethora of locally-based artists and printmakers exhibit some of their work. I almost got dizzy trying to read through the list of 40+ contributors, but the artists include Margaret Becker, Mike Byrne, Laura Carey, Deirdre Gallagher, Vincent Casey, Wendy Dison, Clare Gilmour, Charles Harper, Kieran Herlihy, Elaine Hurley, Mary Meskell, Gavin Hogg, David Lilburn, Breda Lynch, Marian Mc Grath, Meg Kenny, Dan Kenny, Jane Murtagh, Michael O'Connor, Ya Nan Wang, Des Mac Mahon, Mary O'Dea, Suzannah O'Reilly, Derek O'Sullivan, Eithne Deloughry O'Byrne, Fiona Quill, Paul Tarpey, and Gillian Kenny among others.
The exhibition will be opened by Sinéad Dinneen, from the Visual Arts Education module at Mary Immaculate College, and all that happens on Thursday, November 27 at 8pm.
It will run until December 23, so you don't have much excuse to not visit it. While there, it may be worth checking out becoming a friend of the printmakers (a sponsorship schemes), and kids can enrol in new courses kicking off in the New Year in printmaking.
