Luan Gallery is thrilled to announce its autumn 2017 exhibition entitled: Jealous Wall. Curated by visual artist and curator Séamus McCormack, a London based Mullingar native, the exhibition features work by Miranda Blennerhassett, Niall de Buitléar, Janine Davidson, Adam Gibney and David Eager Maher.
The exhibition borrows its title from an architectural construction ‘The Jealous Wall’ which was built in the midlands of Ireland in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath, c.1760. Using concepts, ideas and themes that the structure, its history and form suggest, the exhibition brings together artists’ practices exploring the baroque, illusion, memory, site and architecture. It features a range of works in various media including installation, video, sculpture and drawing.
Jealous Wall will launch on Friday 01st September at 6pm with a wine reception to which all are welcome and will continue until 14th October 2017.
Mayor of Athlone, Cllr Aengus O’ Rourke will speak at the exhibition opening. Luan Gallery is delighted to welcome schools and groups for talks and tours throughout the exhibition run. Guided tours are free of cost and available on request to all.
Luan Gallery is open Tuesday – Saturday from 11.00 – 17.00 and Sundays 12.00 – 17.00. The gallery is closed on Mondays.
