Music in Glass | Róisín de Buitléar at The Ark, Dublin

20 January to 10 February 2018

Sound, captured in glass, is explored in the exhibition of work by Irish glass artist Róisín de Buitléar. Part of the TradFest Children’s Hub 2018.

Featuring pieces from Róisín’s Irish Incantation/Ortha series, the exhibition features a series of beautiful glass objects that capture the essence of musical sound and pitch in glass form. Some of the sculptures are made to evoke the sound and duration of a musical note, others will remind you of musical instruments that look like they could be played.

In fact while visiting the exhibition, you will see a video of them being played by musicians Liam Ó Maonlaí and Peter O’Toole along with hearing Róisín talking about the inspiration for her work.

Alongside the exhibition display will be a fun interactive glass sound exploring area using glass objects found in everyday life that will enable you to try out making your own glass music.

Saturdays 20, 27 Jan & 10 Feb, and Sun 28 Jan @ 10.30am – 4.30pm (last entry 4pm).

Please note during busy periods some waiting may be required. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
