Event Description

1 November 2018 - 7 January 2019
 
Light Keepers is a collection of 25 artworks capturing the unique world of Irish lighthouses .The paintings and lifescapes not only show the physical structures but also capture the echo of the lives lived by the keepers and their families. Where possible, the artwork is based on narratives told by retired light keepers and their families who once lived in the most desolate and beautiful headlands and offshore lighthouse stations on the Irish coastline.
