As part of Féile na Bealtaine, the Dingle Peninsula’s annual festival of the arts, the Annascaul Artists Group will be holding an exhibition at Annascaul Community Centre.
The exhibition, Our Sense of Place, will feature the work of Marie Kennedy, Kate Landers, Monica Phelan and Abe Boland.
Works will feature the
- landscape and light

This year the Artists’ Group are joined by the children of the local national school, Scoil Bhreac Chluain, whose paintings will be seen in the windows of the houses and shops along Annascaul’s Main Street.
The official opening of the exhibition will take place on Friday 28th April at 8 pm.
