As part of Riverside’s A Sense of Ireland ‘88, we present eight artists who deal with resonant images in different ways and using entirely different media.

Vivienne Dick is an experimental film-maker using 8mm and 16mm film; Alanna O’Kelly creates combined installations and performances; Paul Graham’s deadpan colour photographs contrast with Victor Sloan’s large scale treated monochrome photographic works. Mickey Donnelly paints both large scale oils and smaller watercolours, while Brian Cronin is a professional illustrator working for well known magazines like Time and Rolling Stone. Poet Paul Durcan makes his contribution in the catalogue published to coincide with the exhibition. Art historian Joan Fowler will give a talk on related issues on Sunday 15 May at 5pm. Admission free.

SELECTED IMAGES was curated at Riverside’s invitation by Declan McGonagle of the Orchard Gallery, Derry, working with artist James Coleman.

A 32pp catalogue with 8 colour and 12 b&w plates and an introduction by Declan McGonagle and James Coleman will be for sale at a special exhibition price of £4.50.

Exhibition sponsored by Sealink British Ferries and the Department of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Ireland.
