An exhibition celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Fingal County Council Municipal Art Collection.
Thursday 12 September – Saturday 16 November 2019
Fingal County Council is proud to present this major exhibition curated by Una Sealy RHA, James English RHA, Joshua Sex and Sanja Todorovic. The collection comprises of works by national and international artists, graduates, emerging artists and local artists. Over 200 artworks have been acquired since the collection began in 1994 and it has been continually evolving since with new acquisitions being added when the opportunity and resources present themselves. The collection contains a broad selection of work by artists such as Eva Rothschild, George Potter, John Kindness, Pamela Leonard, Maeve McCarthy, Patrick Scott and Mick Cullen, amongst others.
The curators are all Fingal artists, whose art also features in the collection. They describe their process of selecting work for this exhibition as taking in the physical and natural landscape of Fingal and celebrating local and visiting artists that have arrived to the county through the collection. The official motto of Fingal County Council is Flúirse Talaimh is Mara — the abundance of land and sea which is reflected in some of the artworks featured in the exhibition.

Waves, connecting young people, art and the political
As part of the Fingal 2016 Centenary Programme, Fingal County Council’s Arts Office is working in partnership with Fingal Curator Cleo Fagan, founder of Superprojects*, to provide a unique arts-in-education initiative for two post-primary schools in Fingal. The project explores the multiple layers of meaning and contexts associated with the 1916 Easter Rising and the commemorations in 2016. The project links history and the everyday, bringing awareness to the influence of individuals, collectives and our material environment on social and political changes, past and present.

As an artist you will be required to write about your work for press releases, media and marketing purposes. As press and galleries don't have the capacity to interview everyone seeking press coverage they need to get a picture of who you are very quickly.
What can you do as an artist to manage your own message in an engaging, clear and professional way?
In this series of talks followed by Q&A invited speakers will address PR & Skills, Self-promotion and copyright issues for visual artists.

Forget Me Nots is a choir for people living with dementia. It is of great value to these families in our community who have a close relative suffering with the condition as it provides a space, time and reason for them to engage in a healthy arts activity together, something that they have expressed is difficult to come by under the circumstances.
