Beonasc: Thoir agus Thiar
For generations, Belfast’s Irish community has drawn on the wealth of language and culture of the Donegal Gaeltacht and maybe, in recent years, the urban Gaeltacht of Belfast has offered hope to Donegal. To celebrate and demonstrate this link An Gailearaí has teamed up with Culturlann Belfast to host a “bi-location” exhibition where a group of artists will have a piece of artwork in both the Dillon Gallery in Belfast and another in An Gailearaí in the heart of the Donegal Gaeltacht. We will have a video link between the two galleries so that visitors to either can get a sense of both.
The artists selected demonstrate the best of Culturlann exhibitions over the last six years. Artists included are; Brendan O’Sullivan, Bridget Ryan, Caomhán Mac an Iomaire, Catherine McWilliams, Cliodhna Cussen, Gerard Dillon, Eoin Mac Lochlainn, Jennifer Cunningham, Michael Doherty, Rosie McGurran, Seán Ó Flaithearta, Stuart Calvin, Susan Hughes and Úna O’Grady. These artists work in a variety of mediums and so the show will present a diverse range of artworks.
