Old Aran in Colour
July 9, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - September 30, 2022 @ 5:00 pm
Visitors to Inis Oirr are in for a special treat this summer when Áras Éanna hosts an outdoor exhibition of colourised old photos from the three Aran Islands from July to September.
Based on the success of the books ‘Old Ireland in Colour’, NUI Galway academics and co-authors John Breslin and Sarah-Anne Buckley have been involved in three exhibitions of some of their colourised photographs at museums and cultural centres in Galway, Cork and Belfast.
And now they are coming to Inis Oirr.
All of the photographs on display at Áras Éanna, in an exhibition entitled ‘Old Aran in Colour’ (Sean Árann i nDath), were taken on the three Aran Islands. Captions for the photographs will be available’ as Gaeilge’.
Breslin and Buckley are collaborating with Inis Oírr-based MacDara Ó Conaola to co-create a soundtrack around the exhibition photographs.
The launch of this exhibition will be preceded by a talk by Breslin and Buckley, with accompanying music by local composer Ó Conaola for the occasion.
This exhibition is co-funded by the Árainn Fund at NUI Galway and Áras Éanna Ionad Ealaine, the most westerly arts centre in Europe on the beautiful Gaeltacht island of Inis Oirr.
