Community Art Exhibition on Sherkin

Sherkin Island will hold its annual Community Art Exhibition in the Community Hall on Sherkin Island from June 22 – July 3, 2023 from 12 noon until 5pm.

The exhibition will showcase the community’s diverse creative talent and will include paintings, photography, sculpture, textiles and ceramics.

As this year’s theme is ‘Saol’, meaning life in Irish, everyone on the island has also been invited to submit a photograph of what life on Sherkin means to them.

The exhibition is being curated by island artist, Mona O’ Driscoll.

Known as ‘Island of the Arts’, Sherkin Island has attracted a population of creative individuals including professional and non-professional artists, musicians, writers and photographers.

Aisling Moran, community development coordinator with Sherkin Island Development Society (SIDS) said: “This is a celebration of life and creativity here on this vibrant island. As always, we are grateful to Cork County Council and SIDS for their support in helping this to happen. We see it as a great opportunity to showcase the great creative work that is being done here and to welcome people to the island.”
