As a way of highlighting Ireland during its EU Presidency in 2013, Children’s Books Ireland, under the auspices of Laureate na nÓg, took the work of 21 leading Irish children’s book illustrators to international audiences in Austria, Italy and Belgium. Showcasing 21 artists allowed them to demonstrate the range, scope and skill of Irish illustrators and grow their reputation internationally.

The exhibition in Galway comprises 42 art pieces by 21 of these illustrators and includes illustrations from books written in English and Irish.

Galway Arts Centre (47 Lower Dominick Street Galway) From 10 am to 5 pm until November 2nd
