Dark Shadows, an exhibition of new works by Kieran Tuohy opens at The CHQ building next Thursday 22nd March. The exhibition will run daily for two weeks. Admission is free and all are welcome. It will then travel to the Irish Workhouse Centre, Portumna, Co Galway for one month (6th April to 9th May).
Dark Shadows is a sculpture exhibiton based on the Great Irish famine by Galway artist Kieran Tuohy. Kieran has the ability to play on the senses of the observer through sculpture. These powerful and provoking pieces transport one’s mind to a scene of damp, stench ridden and wailing sounds of utter devastating cruelty as he expresses the enormity of the famine and its devastating consequences on our ancestors. It is made up of over 30 sculptures some standing 7ft tall.
