In a land that mourns the recent loss of material wealth, we sometimes have to stop and look at the richness all around us. Artists associated with the Midlands have responded to the theme of Saibhreas (richness and abundance) through photography, print, painting, sculpture, film and audio. This collection examines the pull of history and ancient culture and how it juxtaposes with the modern richness that abounds in the life of the Midlands.
This exhibition travels to Dunamaise from Damer House Gallery, Roscrea.
Official Opening Thursday 18 June, 7pm
Exhibition runs until Saturday 8 August
