Drying art work for physical invitations for a real life in person exhibition opening 🙌 

We are delighted to present an exhibition of newly made work by artist Andy Parsons. 

Opening Saturday 23 Oct. at 4pm

Andy Parsons; Patience
Sat. 23 Oct. - Thu. 23 Dec.

In 2019 The Model commissioned Parsons to be  our inaugural Artist in Residence at Sligo University Hospital, where he engaged staff, patients and families in creative activities and conversations. He particularly focused on working in the Renal Ward where patients undergoing dialysis were enabled to explore creativity through experiments in painting and drawing.

Alongside this work, the artist developed a body of drawings, paintings and sculptures that trace the many stories at the heart of hospital life. The residency was supported by The Model, Creative Ireland, Sligo, and the Arts Council.

📣 We are delighted to launch our latest podcast series - Encounters with Jack B. Yeats 🙌
Episode 1 features rarely heard, rediscovered original audio of Yeats in conversation with curator Thomas MacGreevy. The piece was recorded for a BBC radio arts show called the Third Programme and was broadcast in May 1948. Upcoming episodes include contemporary response to Yeats' work by artists Ruth Clinton & Niamh Moriarty, and Seamus Harahan & Owen Kilfeather.
