ART in MINI - CELEBRATING NORTH-WEST ARTISTSAT 

2 -30 September 2017

“Art in Mini” is a visual collaboration and showcase of over 40 artists from across the North West of Ireland in the heart of Inishowen.

The exhibition will bring modern contemporary art from artists across the North-West to the rural heart of Inishowen giving an opportunity for people living here to view high standard and varied artworks from different artistic perspectives. Many of the works are inspired pieces that explore the rural and urban landscapes of Derry, Doengal and the North-West. Pieces include paintings, sculpture and photography.

The exhibition is being organised by Derry native Stephen Shaw now living in Dublin and Inishowen artist Sinead Smyth. The call for works was a cross-border artist initiated project aiming to provide a platform for multidisciplinary work from artists from or with strong links to the north west of Ireland, mention we even had a well-known installation artist from Korea asking to submit, which leads us to believe there is a real need and demand for this kind of exhibition. We hope to do this again and perhaps on an all-Ireland level next.

Artists Reception
The exhibition will be launched by the highly talented, Inishowen based sculptor Maurice Harron, at the preview and artists reception on Saturday 2 September at 7.30pm.
