Cairde Sligo Arts Festival’s fifth annual open submission exhibition. Building on the success of 2017’s successful partnership with The Model, this show will feature work from both Irish and international artists across a broad diversity of media.

On the occasion of the opening of Cairde Visual, The Model is delighted to present a gallery talk – featuring three of the exhibiting artists – led by Marie-Louise Blaney.

We would like to thank our selection panel: Barra Cassidy (artist), Mark Garry (artist), Emer McGarry (The Model), Pat Murphy (RHA) and Lorna Watkins (artist). And a big thank you to the Cairde Visual Committee: Barra Cassidy, Marilin North, Cormac O’Leary, Lorna Watkins and Heidi Wickham.
