Vikings star Moe Dunford will launch the ‘Vikings in Focus’ photo exhibition at the Old Market House Arts Centre, Dungarvan on Culture Night Friday 21st September 2018 at 7.30pm.

This is an exhibition of spectacular ‘behind the scenes’ photo stills taken on the set of internationally acclaimed television series ‘Vikings’ by official photographers Jonathan Hession and Bernard Walsh, who were the official still photographers on the first two series. Dungarvan’s Moe Dunford appeared in the Vikings series in the role of Aethelwulf.

Moe is currently appearing as Fitzgibbon in BLACK 47 directed by Lance Daly for Fastnet Films which premiered at the 2018 Berlin Film Festival and in the Dublin International Film Festival. He is also filming the male lead (John Paul) opposite Sarah Greene in Roddy Doyle’s new feature film ROSIE directed by Paddy Breathnach for Element Films and due for release in 2019.

The continuation of ‘Vikings’ into a sixth series shows how hugely successful the series is in the USA, Canada, UK as well as Scandinavia and Russia. Last year Executive Producer Morgan O’Sullivan picked up an IFTA for Vikings which won Best Drama series. The series was also nominated across several other categories including Best Supporting Actor for Moe Dunford, Best Director Drama for Ciaran Donnelly, Best Production Design for Mark Geraghty and it also won an IFTA for Best Makeup & Hair, a well deserved feat for the outstanding art department and hair & makeup element of the show that at times sees an extensive array of actors and over 600 extras made up for scenes and battle ensembles.

The Old Market House Arts Centre is pleased to host this exhibition until Saturday November 3rd 2018 which is supported by Wicklow County Council in partnership with World 2000 and the Mermaid Arts Centre. All are welcome to come along on Culture Night from 7.30pm to see the stunning images and to enjoy some music.

Admission is free agus tá fáilte roimh gach éinne.
