Yvonne McGuinness - Amharc Fhine Gall 11th Edition
Draíocht in collaboration with Fingal County Council Arts Office
Draíocht, in collaboration with Fingal County Council Arts Office, is delighted to announce a new commission from visual artist Yvonne McGuinness for the 11th edition of Amharc Fhine Gall. McGuinness’ practice encompasses performance, video, photography, sewing, writing, sculpture and context-specific installations. She has an interest in embodied experience of place and in re-imagining the everyday by devising projects that create dynamic moments of connection to place and community. Her work is immersive, collaborative and is often a catalyst to generate other narratives for its participants.
For this commission, McGuinness will work with a culturally diverse group of local young people, exploring themes of identity, place and their connection to it. This collaboration during the autumn months will result in a site-specific performance and film installation to be shown in Draíocht’s Ground Floor Gallery - itself a two-way mirror between ‘the art world’ and ‘the real world’
Amharc Fhine Gall (Fingal Gaze) is an annual exhibition funded by Fingal County Council’s Arts Office, in collaboration with Draíocht. The exhibition was initiated in 2004 to provide a platform for visual artists from or living in Fingal. Yvonne McGuinness grew up in Portmarnock, Co Fingal.
Draiocht's Galleries are open Monday to Saturday 10am-6pm. Admission is Free.
Curated by Sharon Murphy, Draíocht Curator-in-Residence 2017.

Alison worries. She worries so much she's decided to do a show about it and now she can worry about making it a good show. One of Ireland's fastest rising comedians,the star and writer of RTE's new major series 'Nowhere Fast' , join Alison on her first tour. As seen on RTÉ (Brendan O'Connor's Cutting Edge, Republic of Telly, Des Bishop, this is Ireland), TV3, Sky Arts and heard on Newstalk (George Hook), this is Alison’s hilarious follow up to her smash-hit Fringe success …Discovers Hawaii.
Comedian Gearóid Farrelly’s show will address everything from Trump to decluttering and explain why you shouldn't toilet train a cat. Gearóid has appeared at comedy festivals all over the world. He has supported the likes of Joan Rivers and Sarah Millican in the UK. This year he toured Ireland with Neil Delamere and appears every week on his Sunday Best show on Today FM.
Support on the night from Andrea Farrell (Stellar Comedian of the year)
"To be an audience member in Farrelly’s crowd is a joy. Impeccable comic timing." ★★★★★ Broadway Baby
"Breezily chatty and effusively funny, Alison Spittle is a likeable combination of openness and chortling mischief." The Scotsman
