‘Friendly, accessible exhibition’ of local work

AN exhibition entitled Something Recalled is going on show at Glór this Saturday and will be on show right throughout the summer, until August 31.
It features the work of a number of Clare artists and was curated by Helen Carey, director/curator of the Limerick City Gallery of Art.
The artists involved are Áine Philips, Manuel Vason, Aisling Drennan, Christina Bennett, Colette Egan, Conor McGrady, Emily Stewart-Liberty, Jill Miller, Juliette de la Mar, Mollie Douthit, Robert Ellis and Will O’Kane.
Speaking to The Clare Champion this week Ms Carey said, “The calibre of the submissions is very high and there are quite a lot of them. What Glór were interested in doing was highlighting the wealth of artistic talent that is in Clare, that is beavering away and that’s very loyal to the Clare landscape.”
She feels Glór is quite a good venue.
“Obviously, Glór has music at its heart but it also has this gallery space. It has a number of areas that lend themselves quite well.
“My approach is normally to feel your way to what works best and the show that comes out of that approach is one that’s not just multiple different submissions, it’s actually a coherent, thematic show that deals with the space that’s available, that deal with a certain style that emerges and has a scale that works together.”
While there is some photography, most of the work included is painting and Helen says it will be “a very friendly, accessible exhibition”.
