fnabfront

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.

Nasc – Taispeántas – Féile na Bealtaine – Exhibition

Ó 2010  i leith tá ealaíontóirí an Mheithil Eitseála ag cur feabhas ar a gcumas priontála agus ag cur taispeántáis i láthair. Is taispeántas é ‘Nasc’ a chruthaíonn ceangal le  Cló Ceardlann na gCnoc, Dún na nGall, an t-aon stiúideo priontála gairmiúil eile atá lonnaithe sa Ghaeltacht. Is cinnte go bhfuil ealaíon priontála comhaimseartha den scoth le feiscint sa taispeántas seo.

 “Táimíd an-shásta an nasc seo a thosnú agus a chothú le Cló. Níl anseo ach tús na dtógraí agus na nascanna a bheidh idir lámha againn go náisiúnta agus go h-idirnáisiúnta as seo amach.”

– Coiste Meitheal Eitseála

Since 2010 Meitheal Eitseála/West Kerry Printmakers have been honing their skills & exhibiting their work.  ‘Nasc’ is a show that marks a link with Cló Ceardlann na gCnoc, Donegal, the only other Gaeltacht based print studio in the country. This exhibition is a melting pot of talent, celebrating contemporary Gaeltacht based print art.

“We are very excited to have Cló on board for this year’s exhibition. It marks the first of many valuable projects and collaborations we plan for Meitheal Eitseála in the future, both nationally and internationally.”

Tháinig an grúpa Meitheal Eitseála le chéile chun priontáil a chur chun cinn mar ealaíon. Foinse tábhachtach atá ann d’ealaíontóirí Chiarraí a bhfuil fonn orthu a gcleachta ealaíona a leathnú gan taisteal ró-fhada.

Meitheal Eitseála is a group of artists, who have come together to set up a professional, open access fine art print studio in Dingle.  The studio is an important resource for all Kerry artists who want to extend their practice to include printmaking without having to travel long distances.

Tá spéis ag Cló i ngnéithe úra de léiriú ealaín-tuil agus cuidíonn sé le nochtadh agus gairmiúlacht ealaíontóirí as na ceantair Ghaeltachta.
