Traveller-settled faces on show
PORTRAITS of Traveller
and settled women are to go on show for two months
in Letterkenny as part of the National Travellers
The 'In Your Face' exhibition is a photo montage of
women's portraits - half of whom are Traveller, the
other half settled.
"It is a great privilege to have a national
Traveller exhibition held in Donegal, showcasing all
the wonderful artwork that has been produced by
Travellers throughout the country in recent years,"
said Annemarie Keogh of the Donegal
(DTP). The exhibition of artwork has been created by
Travellers from all over Ireland during the past 25
years and features a wide range of Traveller art,
including paintings, photography, sculpture, DVDs
and traditional tin-smithing. The exhibition is
being presented by Blue Drum, a specialist support
agency working with the Irish community development
sector in partnership with the Donegal Travellers
Project and Donegal County Council.
The exhibition will be officially opened at the
Regional Cultural Centre, Port Road, Letterkenny on
Tuesday, October 19 at 6 pm to which everyone is
welcome. The exhibitionwill then run until Friday,
December 17, with opening hours as follows: Tuesdays
to Fridays from 11am to 5 pm and Saturdays from 1pm
to 5pm. For more information, call the Regional
Cultural Centre on 91 29186.
