Weekend Of Jazz And More In Cork City

 

The weekend began early with the hanging of paintings in L'Atitude 51 Wine Bar on Union Quay.  "Legacy" is a joint exhibition of new work by West Cork artists, Janet Murran and Donagh Carey. Janet's work is about memories and evoke the atmosphere of the past.  Donagh's oil sketches depict townscapes and landscapes of the environment in which he lives.  Call in to view the show anytime L'Atitude is open, enjoying the hospitality and sampling their fine wine.

Every home should have space for a chaise longue and it gave Antoinette another opportunity for a sit down, before hitting the town for some jazz.

NEW SHOW At The Lavit

Antoinette popped in to the Lavit Gallery in Cork City on a rainy Tuesday evening for the opening of the latest exhibition 'Music', for which all artists had submitted work on a musical theme.  

Appropriately, musicians accompanied the viewing and the show was officially opened by Evelyn Grant of the Cork Pops Orchestra and RTÉ Lyric fm.  The paintings and sculpture displayed include new work by Katherine Boucher Beug, Elizabeth Charleston James English, Tim Goulding, Bob Quinn, Vivienne Roche, Brian Smyth, Trish Taylor Thompson, Conor Walton and David West.

The Lavit Gallery was set up more than fifty years ago in Cork city by a group of artists to provide a venue where fine art could be accessed. The gallery now shows the work of over 200 artists and is well established as a place to view and buy art.   Many new artists have had the opportunity to show their work to a Cork audience and as well as showing national and international artists, the gallery has promoted and encouraged emerging artists, particularly through it’s annual Student of the Year award.
