Twenty years ago Sam Gaines was diagnosed with MS. Both his life and that of his partner Sadhbh changed forever. This exhibition is a visual and written journal of their lives over the past year. It is a story about shinning in the face of adversity and living life to the fullest, while at the same time being present and authentic to all the challenges that serious illness and full time caring brings with it.
‘’There is Only Love ‘’ was originally created as part of National Palliative Care Week for Milford Care Centre in Limerick. Both Sam Gaines and Sadhbh O Neill are both artists, Sam is a painter and Sadhbh is a sculptor and they have experienced first-hand how creativity has healed, given meaning and purpose to our lives. Being creative is their response and light through dark times. It is their way of holding both the beauty and terror of it all.
The exhibition runs from the 3rd – 22nd of December, it is a free event and everyone is welcome to attend.
