We’re in for a big treat this year as Féile na Bealtaine, our annual arts and music festival comes around again. With 25 listed visual arts events not to mention the countless other events that would take too long to mention, I decided to just highlight some of the art events organised by artists who have been part of our printmaking group.
Tá an fhéile is fearr ar domhain tagtha arís! Féile na Bealtaine! Ós rud é go bhfuil an méid sin ar siúil nílim ach ag díriú ar roinnt bheag den chlár fís ealaíona. Tá tuilleadh eolas, gan dabht, le fáil anseo Féile na Bealtaine.

About Urban Soup
From the primordial soup to the urban soup – a series of images exploring the impact of the urban environment on both humans and animals, both of which must significantly adapt to inhabit its confines. Humans and wildlife living side by side, urban soup hopes to blend both experiences in a hearty broth whose ingredients include thoughts on homelessness, fear, feelings of displacement, awakenings and escape.
All the prints are from hand cut lino blocks and are printed using environmentally friendly inks on where ever possible recycled papers and will be exhibited without frames or glass… there’s already too much packaging in the world as it is.
