    Art and the environment is the focus of Idir Sholas, the MA graduate exhibition  at Uilinn, the West Cork Arts Centre in Skibbereen until March 26.  With a diverse range of media the exhibition showcases the work of graduates of the first masters degree to be located in west Cork – Deirdre Archbold, Ann Burns, Guy Dalton, Sinéad McCormick, Sylwia Migdal, Katie Nolan and Ruairí Ó Donnabháin.  This innovative masters degree makes the relationship between arts and environments –  ecological, spatial, political, economic – the focus of its study.  It has  extended a range of creative opportunities for islanders and the broader West Cork community. The exhibition represents the journey made by students who have been actively involved  in contemporary culture as organisers, makers and commentators over the past 17 months.

    Christmas shows are usually in full swing in galleries up and down Ireland at this point.  The sector has been hard hit by the pandemic but many art galleries are fighting back.  An online showcase just launched at Uilinn: West Cork Arts Centre features a collection of art by more than 60 artists from the city and county of Cork.  The range at Cork Artists Winter Showcase encompasses oil, acrylic, and watercolour painting, to textile and glass work, to print, photography and sculpture.    “We will truly miss seeing everyone at our annual Uillinn Christmas Fair, but this exhibition will provide that space for a wide public to see and support the talented artists who are living and working in this region” Uillinn Director Ann Davoren said.
