Pigsy in Kenmare

For the most part, I love living abroad and only occasionally do I really miss home. Well one of those "missing home" times is now!

My twin sister and her husband, the Irish artist Pigsy, are putting on a big wonderful art show in the beautiful town of Kenmare. If you've been following my blog you will know that I've worked with them on many exciting projects in the past including art exhibitions in Dublin and London.

The good news is that they are not missing me! I.e. everything is going swimmingly and they don't appear to need me even one little bit. Gee whizz you guys, that hurts! Lol, I digress, plus am joking.

Without further ado please let me give you a pre opening overview of Catharsis of Collapse by Pigsy

There's Enid, hard at work with the hanging of the artworks.

They hired a van and drove down from Dublin - themselves, all the art pieces and Bones the dog.

This exhibition is sponsored by Torc Brewing,  exciting new craft beer brewers from Killarney.

Pigsy and his art show got nice coverage in a good few publications over the last few weeks. Pictured is a little piece from Ireland's Social and Person magazine.

And finally! The space. With all the art hung in it. How beautiful and awesome is this venue, The Kenmare Buttermarket. Would you believe it was an old dance hall in the 1960's. The space and scale works perfectly for the scale and vibrancy of Pigsy art.

Well done Enid and Ciaran aka Pigsy! I am excited for you and I know this show will be a success. Enjoy the fruits of your hard work!

And if you are in Kerry for the next month, why not stop by and see the show?!
