‘Diving for Pearls’ joint exhibition on Culture Night, Dungarvan


Culture Night, Friday 20th September 2019 sees the opening of an exciting new exhibition, ‘Diving for Pearls’ by two first cousins in the Old Market House Arts Centre in Dungarvan.

The exhibition features work by Sinead Ní Chionaola, a landscape artist originally from Dungarvan and Helen O’Connell, glass artist.  This will be the first time both cousins will host a joint exhibition of their work.  Both artists have a deep interest in the inner and outer landscapes of life, and acknowledge that while these landscapes are often dark,  “no grit – no pearl!”

This interesting perspective has inspired their joint collection, ‘Diving for Pearls’ which has been especially curated for Culture Night and will run until the end of October.  The Arts Centre is open from 6.30pm to 9pm on Culture Night with a special bi-lingual gallery talk by Sinéad and Helen at 7.30pm. All are welcome to this free event.
