GLOSSY round-up of things to do this weekend, featuring healthy food from SABA and a new exhibition at the ROYAL HIBERNIAN ACADEMY
SEE Vivienne Foley’s first solo exhibition in Ireland in over ten years at the Solomon gallery, from Friday January 15 to February 21. Although predominantly known for her work in ceramics, Foley will also be showing a new series of elegantly modelled bronze sculpture. Solomon Fine Art, Balfe Street, Dublin 2; www.solomonfineart.ie.
CATCH Liam Ó Maonlaí, Kevin Burke and Tim Edey live in concert where they will showcase their unique mix of traditional Irish and newly composed music at various venues around the country from January 13-January 26. See www.musicnetwork.ie for dates, locations and ticket information.
PRACTICE a little self-care while sticking to your New Year’s resolutions with a healthy takeaway from Saba’s new paleo menu. Created by head chef Taweesak Trakoolwattana in conjunction with leading nutritionist Erika Doolan of Nutrition Ireland, the dishes, like this tempting Prawn Primal Green, and cocktails are all nutritious, low in calories and as tasty as ever. Available at Saba, 26-28 Clarendon Street, Dublin 2 and online at www.sabatogo.com in Rathmines and Dundrum.
ESCAPE from the bitter cold at the cinema where you can see Room, which received four Oscar nominations this week, nationwide from Friday January 14. Based on the acclaimed Emma Donoghue novel about a young woman and her son who are held captive in a garden shed for seven years, it’s directed by Lenny Abrahmson and features amazing performances from Brie Larson and newcomer Jacob Tremblay. www.roomthemovie.com
WANDER through The Foggy Dew, Mick O’Dea’s new exhibition about the 1916 Rising in Gallery 1 at the RHA, from January 15-February 21. Using documentary sources, O’Dea approached the project as half historian, half painter. The result is a must-see. Royal Hibernian Academy, 15 Ely Place, Dublin 2; www.rhagallery.ie.
