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.

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



There’s no need to use too many words to explain this beautiful project (that we can enjoy within the Fringe Festival) especially after checking the images and pictures they are publishing.

Dear Salthill is a community memory project established in March 2013. The project aims to gather fragments of memory attached to Salthill.The focus of the project is collective memory of the location.

It explores the collective community memory of the location, past and present. The process is being documented through the use of social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

You can go to the exhibition until next Friday July 26th, and have a look at the pictures (like the ones here) of their website:
