Anglo Printers are proud to have provided corporate sponsorship of a solo exhibition in Highlanes Gallery: Chair by Mary A. Kelly, curated by Aoife Ruane, Director of Highlanes Gallery which ran from 9th February — 13th April 2019.
The exhibition included an artist's Gallery; Talk and conversation; public tours; children's gallery tours and workshops and a series of traditional musical performances/recitals.
The seven-week programme had an involvement with local DEIS schools through a creative arts outreach initiative to educate and engage 190 young school children in the traditional/visual arts. Members of our team and their families enjoyed the "Chair" exhibition, the trad music recitals and the children's workshops. Our aim is to have a positive social impact on employees and the local community through our contribution to the Arts.
To coincide with Mary A. Kelly's exhibition Chair, a cross-artform initiative, Two Chairs, a programme of four, one hour, evening recitals of traditional music by some of the best and most influential artists of their genre took place in Highlanes Gallery which included Zoë Conway & John McIntyre; Liam Ó Maonlaí; Dave Sheridan & Padraig McGovern and Tara Breen & Padraig Rynne.
Drogheda International Classical Music Series also worked with Highlanes to present Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition performed by Barry Douglas to the backdrop of the ‘Chair’ Exhibition.
Mary A. Kelly’s Chair exhibition went on tour to Custom House Studios, Westport from 6-30 June & visits West Cork Arts Centre (co-producers of the exhibition) from 26 October -12 December 2019.
