West Cork Artist’s Winter Showcase
6 November 2019 to 25 January, 2020
A sense of the magic of West Cork is reflected in this West Cork Winter Showcase. From tactile textiles to textured landscapes the rugged and raw terrain of the West is echoed throughout the show. We get a sense of winter from the deep evergreens and the spectrum of reds. We are taken on an unexpected journey across the land seeing abstract atmospheres of colour to wonderful wide angled views. This Winter Showcase displays some of the wealth of talent and artistic perspectives from West Cork.
