Posted on: July 5, 2018

An Criú (Associate Artists of Macnas) present In Sight.

In Sight is an exhibition of cross-disciplinary art work at Áras Éanna, Inis Oírr (Aran Islands) by artists associated with renowned Galway-based performance company, Macnas. The exhibition will be opened by Dara McGee on Sat 7th July at 8pm and runs until 12th August.

The epic Macnas parades that grace the streets worldwide are created through a huge team effort and belief in a common vision. Though the artists work hand-in-glove with each other on making the parades, this exhibition is a unique coming-together of artists and their individual work. This one-off exhibit presents a rare opportunity to see the work of painters, sculptors and designers who create magic on the streets year round.

This exciting exhibition features the work of over 20 artists based in Ireland and the UK including Angie Byrne, Tommy Casby, Orla Clogher, Midie Corcoran, Dave Donovan, Mary Doyle, Eugene Finnegan, Chris Gibbons, Jojo Hynes, Claudia Lamantea, Áine Lawless, Dara McGee, Tom Meskell, Gavin Morgan, Emma O’Grady, Michelle Ruane, Katya Solomatina , Lisa Sweeney, Cherie White, Bill Wright and Dave Young. Those attending can expect an eclectic mix of painting, metal work, sound and video installations, sculpture and textiles. The exhibition will be opened by Dara McGee, artistic director of Áras Éanna and long-time Macnas member, on Sat 7th July at 8pm and runs until 12th August 2018.

Supported by Galway County Council.
