Wexford Arts Centre and Wexford County Council, Newtown Road

To celebrate its 45th anniversary, Wexford Arts Centre, the oldest regional arts centre in the country, in partnership with Wexford County Council, is delighted to present From the Mountain, featuring works from the Arts Council Collection and invited artists Orla Bates, Stephen Brandes, Fran Greene, Paul McKinley, Olivia O’Dwyer and Michael John Whelan. The exhibition places emphasis on the Arts Council’s continual support in the development of the arts countywide. From the Mountain considers our relationship with the natural world and how it has changed radically over time. The title of the exhibition is taken from a video work by Michael John Whelan which explores our connection with the environment and questions our diverse roles as observer, protector and eventual consumer. Works in the exhibition also consider moments in socio-cultural history—the definition of freedom, the creation of national states, and the search for secular meaning – the natural world figures in these moments and yet it’s meaning changes through historical context.
