The Hamilton Gallery will host a two month-long exhibition featuring the works of eight Sligo-based contemporary visual artists.
‘Of This Place’, which opened on Thursday last, is being run as part of the year-long celebrations of the 150th Anniversary of the birth of William Butler Yeats.
The artists showcasing their talents were inspired by the same landscape as the famous poet and recently saw their work on display at the El Ateneo in Madrid, hosted by the Yeats Society Madrid and the Irish Embassy.
The event was attended by Irish Ambassador to Spain, Mr David Cooney and his wife, Geraldine O’Kelly who is originally from Sligo.
A catalogue, written by Brian Leyden, will accompany the exhibition where visitors can read about the inspirations for the various pieces on show by each artist.
Nuala Clarke, Conor Gallagher, Cormac O’Leary, Brian McDonagh, Leonard Neary, Kater MacDonagh, Bettina Seitz and Michael Wann are the featured artists for the exhibition. ‘Of This Place’ runs until Monday, August 31.
