The ‘Awash With Colour’ exhibition, a collaboration between visual artists and writers in the North East, will be launched at Íontas Theatre and Arts Centre, Castleblayney on Thursday 9th of December at 7.30pm.
‘Awash With Colour’ is a collaboration between Art As Exchange (AAEX) who are based in Dundalk, Co. Louth and Monaghan Poets and Songwriters Group (Moposogs). The project, ‘Awash With Colour’ came about during the last lockdown and involved an exchange of inspirational visual art and written pieces between 38 individuals from both groups.
Iontas Theatre were delighted to host this debut exhibition and have provided both gallery and performance space for the launch night. Attendees will have the opportunity to view all 41 visual pieces along with the corresponding written words. Each piece will also have a scannable QR code whereby the viewer can listen to the writer recite or sing their composition. (So don’t forget to bring your headphones with you!) Eleven members of Monaghan Poets and Songwriters will perform their work at the launch – this will also include a streamed performance from group member Enda Reilly who currently resides in Detroit! The theatre will be set out in cabaret style allowing for small groups to sit together in pods for the free 80 minute long performance.
