Fingal Coastline & Wild Swimming Exhibition

Wednesday
08.05.24

Runs From: 19:00 - 21:30

The rugged beauty of the Fingal coastline comes alive in a mesmerizing fusion of art and nature. Join us for the grand opening of the Fingal Coastline and Wild Swimming Exhibition at The Séamus Ennis Arts Centre. This unique event celebrates the untamed allure of our coastal landscapes and the exhilarating experience of wild swimming.

 

Step into a world where canvas pieces capture the essence of crashing waves, hidden coves, and sun-kissed cliffs. All the exhibited art is available for purchase, allowing you to bring a piece of the coast into your own home. Whether you’re drawn to the vibrant colours of a sunrise over the Irish Sea or the serene blues of a secluded inlet, there’s something for every art lover.

 

Your appreciation for art also contributes to a noble cause. The majority of the proceeds from art sales will go directly to the Irish Life Boats, supporting their vital work in safeguarding our waters. By acquiring a piece from this exhibition, you become part of a community that values both creativity and compassion.

 

At 7:30 PM, we’re honoured to host Killian Kelly, Water Safety Education Manager. Join us as he shares insights into water safety practices and the joys of wild swimming. Whether you’re a seasoned swimmer or simply curious about the magic of open water, Killian’s talk promises to be enlightening and inspiring.

 

As you immerse yourself in art and conversation, our cosy Cottage Café awaits. Sip on freshly brewed teas and coffees, savour delectable snacks, and let the ambiance of the Séamus Ennis Arts Centre envelop you. It’s the perfect spot to discuss your favourite pieces or simply soak in the creative energy.

 

We extend heartfelt thanks to the talented artists and photographers who have generously supported this event. Their vision and dedication have transformed our gallery into a coastal wonderland. 🙌

 

Mark your calendar for this unforgettable evening—a celebration of art, adventure, and community. Let the Fingal coastline inspire you, and together, let’s make waves for a brighter future.

This exhibition is FREE to attend and we look forward to welcoming you all along.
