Eoin MacLochlainn is a talented artist resident in Harold’s Cross, winner of the Keating McLaughlin Award at the RHA and the Golden Fleece Award. Eoin’s late father Piarais was keeper of the museum for the Kilmainham Gaol Restoration Society and organising secretary of the national commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Rising in 1966, as well as editor of the wonderful book “Their Last Words”, containing letters and statements of the executed leaders of the Rising. Eoin will curate an art exhibition on the theme of Rebellion in Mount Argus on Saturday 14th May in conjunction with his exhibition at the Pearse Cottage in Connemara.  There will be four participating artists – Eoin himself, Lorcan Walsh, Nuala Ní Fhlathúin and Ricí Ni Chleirigh.

Jane Fogarty : 3pm, 14th May Army Tent, Harold’s Cross Park.

Paperwork is an exhibition of new work by artist Jane Fogarty.

Accompanying the exhibition will be a workshop Drawing a moment.

This workshop, aimed at primary school children, will focus on how we preserve/commemorate memories and events. How memory can be unreliable and subject to individual subjectivity. How we remember. During the workshop, each student will create a drawing of a specific moment, which, when combined with the group’s drawings will create a collective memory of a moment.
