AS the year of ‘The Gathering’ continues, 54 of Co Kerry’s most popular artists have contributed to a unique exhibition in celebration of the initiative.
The Copper House Gallery is hosting ‘The Gathering 2013’, featuring the work of some of the county’s most established and emerging artists.
The exhibition communicates through the medium of visual art, a strong sense of place and connection to the Kerry identity that it is hoped will resonate with all audiences, at home and abroad.
The exhibition was opened by the Minister for Arts Jimmy Deenihan.
It is believed the concept is the first of its kind anywhere in the world.
Despite all the artists being based in Kerry, the exhibition will relate with all Irish people, at home and abroad.
Among the featured exhibitions are the dramatic landscapes of the Beara and Dingle peninsulas to the magnificent lakes and mountains of Killarney.
The exhibition is accompanied by a beautiful, collectable catalogue commemorating The Gathering 2013, an exhibition of work by Kerry artists, featuring work by internationally renowned artists such as Pauline Bewick, Maria Simonds-Gooding, Liam O'Neill and Carol Cronin.
The exhibition runs until the end of this week at the Copper House Gallery on Synge Street, and admission is free.
