Derrick Hawker: An Islands’ Retrospective – Ceiliúradh & Buíochas

Derrick Hawker: An Islands' Retrospective – Ceiliúradh & Buíochas

One of the exhibitions of the Arts Festival is still in the Galway City Museum, until the end of August.

Derrick Hawker is an artist and designer-craftsman who has been involved with the community and the landscape of the western islands of Connemara since the 60’s. This exhibition is a celebration of his love for the people and the place. He has spent the last twelve years making a series of twelve paintings which focus symbolically on Ballynakill Lake in Gorumna. This is the first time they have been exhibited. The exhibition will run on the Second Floor Gallery as part of the Galway Arts Festival programme for 2013.

Remember that the Museum is open from Tuesday to Saturday, from 10 to 17 h and the admission is free
