ELEMENTS: West Cork Landscape

July 12 to August 6, 2018 at the O’Driscoll Bldg near the river in the centre of town.

Opening reception:  Friday July 13, 6 – 8 pm

This flagship exhibition for the Skibbereen Arts Festival features paintings by 30 artists that celebrate West Cork’s glorious landscape.  For more than fifty years, West Cork has drawn artists to its richly varied landscapes, and many of the show’s artists live and work here.  While they work in different styles and media, their work reflects West Cork’s varied topography, flora and fauna, weather and other elements.

Participating are Katherine Boucher Beug, Mary Canty, Donagh Carey, William Crozier, Jill Dennis, Angela Fewer, Tim Goulding, Carol Hodder, Ian Humphries, John Kelly, Helena Korpela, Siobhan McDonald, Michael McSwiney, Frieda Meaney, Susan Montgomery, Janet Murran, Coilín Murray, Anastasia O’Donoghue Healy, Danny Osborne, Ginny Pavry, Fiona Power, Paul Ringrose, Frances Ryan, Terry Searle, Angie Shanahan, John Simpson, Jacqueline Stanley, Donald Teskey, Christine Thery, and Catherine Weld.  The exhibition is curated by Catherine Hammond.

ELEMENTS runs until Monday, August 6th.  The exhibition is open Monday – Friday 11 – 5 and on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 to 4.
