04 May 2013 - 30 May 2013
Off Season Photography by Niall Kerrigan May 4 – May 30. In the Courthouse Gallery, Parliament St. Ennistymon, Co Clare.
The concept of Off Season comes from the months when holiday homes/villages are unoccupied, the atmosphere this creates and the sense of life in suspended animation; reminiscent of the famine villages. Shops in small, seaside towns waiting for the tourist business to come back; colourful playgrounds and amusements sitting empty.
The Fabric of the West of Ireland Potography by Patrick McHugh May 4 – May 30 In the Courthouse Gallery, Parliament St. Ennistymon, Co. Clare. It is the textures or fabric of the west of Ireland that effects my work wherever I go, be it in my personal, editorial or advertising work. I find texture or fabric tends to be evident in much of my photography. The texture or fabric of a face, a surface, a tree, a landscape seems to be ever evident. This exhibition shows some personal work and some of my published editorial work with a strong emphasis in Black and White photography.
