You are most welcome to join us in celebrating the launch of Sheena Furlong’s exhibition of work that
– due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions – has now been adapted for online viewing. Don your glad rags
or PJ’s add a drink of choice, some light bites and enjoy browsing the exhibition on display from the
comfort of your own home.

The Presentation Centre is proud to present Cur Amach Anaithnid; An Unknown Familiarity: an exhibition of work by visual artist Sheena Furlong.

Sheena Furlong is a painter and workshop facilitator who works from her studio in the rural village of Kilmuckridge. The Forde Studio was established one year ago in November 2019 as a working studio, offering classes and insight into studio practice for those interested to learn.

In that short year there has been unprecedented challenges presented to those working in the arts sector, including the cancelation of exhibitions such as Cur Amach Anaithnid; An Unknown Familiarity as gallery spaces across the county remain closed.

In our efforts to continue to offer support to artists as best we can, we have taken this opportunity to adapt this exhibition of work for online viewing and hope that through adversity comes opportunity, in that we can share this exhibition with audiences online, connecting in new and innovative ways.

As we share this exhibition we also hope to delve into the working life of the artist, to speak with Sheena about her practice, missed opportunities and the difficulties facing artists in a world so restricted.
