THE SEX life of James Joyce and Nora Barnacle, as well as their love and romance, is the stuff of a new exhibition currently running in the Town Hall Theatre bar.

Letters, Joyce and Nora is the title of this group exhibition of artworks exploring the love letters from the Dublin writer to the Galwaywoman. Participating artists are Nick Shaughnessy Nolan, Ciara Nolan, Sabina Niquize, Alicante Olivia Lavelle, Rocio Grau, Tom Mathews, Margaret Nolan, Hugh Friel, Tony Carragher, and Ann Dwyer.

As the pair's letters were of a very sexual nature, so are many of the paintings, sculptures, prints, mixed media, and photographs on display. "I've had to cover Tom Mathews pieces with a veil as they are very graphic," said exhibition curator Margaret Nolan. "People can lift the veil and look if they choose."
