Caochspota / Blindspot

art exhibition in Clo Nuala-Ni-Fhlathuin-1

Ba mhaith liom a rá libh faoi taispeántas speisíalta a bhéas ar siúl i nGaillimh i mí Meithimh. Caochspota an teideal a bheidh air agus is í Nuala Ní Fhlathúin a bhéas á eagrú. Beidh ealaíontóirí le Gaeilge ag glacadh páirt san taispeántas seo, roinnt acu ón nGaeltacht agus roinnt acu ó lasmuigh den Ghaeltacht. Tá áthas orm a rá go bhúr mise cuireadh le bheith páirteach ann. Tá mé fós ag iarraidh socrú cén sórt saothar a chuirfidh mé isteach ann (!). Tá ealaín an-spéisiúl ag Nuala í fhéin.  Sin cúpla píosaí léi thuas ag barr.

Tá Nuala tar éis suíomh idirlíona a chur ar bun freisin, áit ina bhféadfadh ealaíontóirí le Gaeilge teacht le chéile ar an ngréasán domhanda.  “Nua Ealaín” is ainm dó agus is feidir é sin a fheiscint ag http://nuaealain.wordpress.com/

I received an invitation recently to take part in an exhibition called Caochspota / Blindspot  in the Niland Gallery in Galway. I was curious because the exhibition will feature the work of contemporary artists who speak (or have an interest in) the Irish language. A website has been set up as a sort of portal for such artists and, as I’m just finding out, there is a lot of them! And I’m sure that, as the story goes out, we’ll discover that there are lots more. The website is Nua Ealaín   ( http://nuaealain.wordpress.com/ ).

Above, I have featured the intriguing work of one of the artists – Nuala Ní Fhlathúin, they are some of the works from her solo exhibition in Cló Ceardlann na gCnoc last year.  (www.clo.ie)
