Into the Light, 60 years of Supporting the Arts
To celebrate its 60th anniversary, the Arts Council is working in partnership with four prominent Irish galleries: The Model, The Hugh Lane, Crawford Art Gallery and Limerick City Gallery of Art to produce a series of exhibitions as a major national showcase of works by over 100 artists from its collection. The exhibition in The Model will present works from both the Arts Council Collection and Sligo’s own Niland Collection and will explore strong themes running through both collections, namely, landscape, domesticity, craft and abstraction.
