The Olivier Cornet Gallery has been involved in Bloomsday celebrations since its owner moved to the area in 2014. This year the exhibition is a reference to Dr Flicka Small’s excellent thesis which looks at the semiotics of food in Ulysses. The show will feature watercolour paintings by two of the gallery artists, Yanny Petters and Eoin Mac Lochlainn, as well as invited artists Michelle Boyle, Áine Divine and John Keating. The exhibition will also incorporate 'Penelope', filmed by Conor Tobin, performed by Caitríona Ní Threasaigh and Aaron Hughes. The exhibition will open on Thursday 13th June 7pm and will run throughout Bloomsday week.
On Saturday 15th June and Sunday 16th June, Dublin Sketchers, will present an exhibition of sketchbooks, also on the theme of food, in the beautiful Blue Room above the gallery.
On Sunday 16th June, from 3pm onwards, visitors will be able to indulge in a selection of food and cheeses from our sponsors, the Derry-based award-winning artisan Tamnagh Foods. A live performance of ‘Penelope’ by the artist Caitríona Ní Threasaigh will also take place on the day.
Exhibition Launch 13 June @ 7pm free, no booking required.
Show runs 13 - 30 June from 11am - 8pm.
