Visions of an Unsettled Earth is an exhibition of works by three Cork-based artists – Debbie Godsell, Fiona Kelly, and Sarah O’Flaherty – at Sirius Arts Centre, Cobh. The exhibition explores ideas of transience and transformation positioning human interactions as a continuous collaboration and negotiation with the land. The exhibition examines how we can support the Earth, while at the same time supporting each other in unstable times. Godsell, Kelly and O’Flaherty depict the land as something malleable, which can be propped and supported through stacking, draping, and underpinning. Print, sculpture, and photography are employed to describe landscape as a three-dimensional shared reality. The (free) multimedia exhibition runs until Saturday October 31; www.siriusartscentre.ie.
The Doorway Gallery’s new online exhibition presents works by Irish American artist John McNulty. Defined by their simplicity, they are inspired by the rhythms of agricultural life. With The Doorway Gallery’s new app, users can get the unique experience of being able to virtually hang one of McNulty‘s paintings in their own home, simply by downloading and following the set-up instructions. There is also a question and answer evening with McNulty at 8pm on Thursday August 27, on all the gallery’s social media accounts; www.thedoorwaygallery.com.
