AIMSITHE (discovered) is the third Exhibition of Summer 2021 from Ougherard Courthouse Arts Programme (OCAP) and will feature the work of Co Galway Artists Collective AKIN including Jay Murphy, Dolores Lyne, Leonie King, Margaret Irwin and Sioban Piercy.

The Exhibition Programme had originally been planned as part of the SET IN STONE project which was selected for Galway 2020 Small Towns Big Ideas programme. Each Exhibition is in response to the research of local archaeologist and historian Bill Daly, who has traced the history of Oughterard back to neolithic times.

AIMSITHE will be launched in the Courthouse on Friday 30th July from 4.30-7.30pm and continue to Sunday 8th August 2021. The Exhibition will be open Monday to Saturday 10am -5pm and 12-5pm on Sundays. All welcome!

AKIN was formed to bring together a group of artists based in rural Galway to discuss and share ideas and to provide a resource and a platform for showcasing their work in a mutually supportive context. All the artists work individually and have their own distinctive voice and together share their collective energy. For over 25 years they have been a significant part of the cultural map of Galway, individually and as a group.

OCAP is a voluntary group which was formed to run a programme of Visual Art Exhibitions during the Summer months in Oughterard Courthouse with support from both Oughterard Courthouse Conservation & Heritage Company and Galway County Council.
