1 to 28 July
County Laois Arts Officer Muireann Ní Chonaill and Dublin gallerist Olivier Cornet met for the first time at the Speed Curating event arranged annually by Visual Artists Ireland (VAI) as part of their artists’ Get Together at the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA). Through working side-by-side in the chapel at IMMA, meeting artists at this event, the idea for the joint exhibition was born. From the artists they met last year, Olivier invited David Fox and Vicky Smith and Muireann invited Darina Meagher and Aileen Hamilton to participate in this joint exhibition.
The exhibition will open in the Laois Arthouse, Stradbally, Co Laois, on Saturday 1st July, 1pm and will run there until Friday 28th July. Guest Speaker at the opening: Monica Flynn, Professional Development Officer, Visual Artists Ireland (VAI)
The exhibition will travel at the end of the month to the Olivier Cornet Gallery, 3 Great Denmark Street, Dublin 1 where it will open on Sunday 6th August, 3pm. The show will run there until 3rd September. Guest Speaker at the opening: Noel Kelly, CEO and Director of Visual Artists Ireland (VAI). www.oliviercornetgallery.com/
