Ancient and Wild | Group Exhibition at Johnston Central Library, Cavan

11 December to 6 January

As part of the Creative Ireland programme, Cavan County Council arts and heritage office and the UNESCO Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark have invited twelve artists to engage with and respond to the landscape, geology, and socio-political history of County Cavan and in particular the area of the Geopark.

The landscape, the rivers and the human responses to the geology and the natural habitats that we have today are intriguing. Landscape is and remains a source of interest for artists and those of inquisitive minds. Many fold, is the fascination of the diverse landscape and the years of human habitation and natural occurrences that define Cavan.

The artists participating in this project are from a range of arts disciplines and include: music, storytelling, literature, curating, architecture and the visual arts. They are: Bee Smith, Heather Brett, Jim Fee, Ben Mc Cabe, Freda Young, Cormac Mc Cann, Elena Duff, Rikki van den Berg, Siobhan Harton, Rosarie Mc Hugh and Konik Artists Pawel and Kasia.
