Such a crowd made it to my solo show in The Bourn Vincent Gallery in Limerick, it was wonderful. Some people drove down from Dublin to be there for the opening. There were visitors from South Kilkenny, from Cork, from Limerick, from Clare and even as far away as Sligo town. ( that’s a three and a half hour drive ) It was a great night and I really appreciated that so many people came from far and near to be there with us.
I’d also like to thank Yvonne Davis, the visual arts administrator, Maurice Quillinan on the steering committee and Aidan, the technician ( I’m sorry, technicians never seem to have surnames ). Everyone connected with the gallery was particularly helpful and friendly. And while I’m at it, I’d like to thank John Lonergan for opening the show with a rousing speech.
At the opening, the painting above was purchased for the University’s own collection. The exhibition continues ( Monday to Friday only ) from 9.30am to 5.30pm until the 27th of April, 2012. You can view some images from the exhibition on my website at www.eoinmaclochlainn.com
