A prestigious exhibition of prints by 13 of the top names in Irish contemporary art opens at the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar on Friday next July 9. In a lasting tribute to The Hugh Lane's first centenary in 2008, the gallery invited 13 artists to collaborate in creating a unique print collection. Mindful of the concept and the ethos of Hugh Lane supporting contemporary practice, the resulting prints are as exceptional as they are rare. The work represents a unique collaboration between The Hugh Lane and artists Dorothy Cross, Willie Doherty, Barry Flanagan and Keith Milow, Louis le Brocquy, Ciarán Lennon, Anne Madden, Elizabeth Magill, Brian Maguire, Brian O'Doherty, Kathy Prendergast, Patrick Scott, Sean Scully, and Seán Shanahan.
The Hugh Lane Centenary print collection exhibition officially opens at 7.30pm. The show will be officially opened by exhibition curator Pádraic E Moore. Admission is free and all are welcome. The exhibition runs until Saturday July 31. The Linenhall Gallery is open to the general public Monday-Friday from 10am to 5pm; Saturday from 11am to 5.30pm. Admission to exhibitions is free.
