While searching for a good spot to send Pan soaring, a tumble down a hillside places the boy, the kite, and the cat in the perfect meadow – perfect except for one tree… BEWARE! Brenda will perform a reading on the night. Books can be ordered directly from the Austin Macauley website: www.austinmacauley.com/us as well as Amazon.
An Exhibition in The Ballinglen Gallery : ‘In Between’ by Fumi Makasi. “I’m always curious and look at things which are “in between” every day in my life that is undefined – not a specific place, time, species, and feelings.
These “in between” elements trigger my imagination and reflect my art. In this exhibition, I also aim to include my experience in my Ballinglen art residency programme in which I saw, perceived, and encountered through my lens.”
Fumi is the winner of the emerging student award at IT Sligo. The award includes a two week residency at Ballinglen, a small stipend, plus an Exhibition in The Ballinglen Gallery all sponsored by The Ballinglen Arts Foundation.
