Signals in the Dark Opening

Director/Curator Seamus Kealy, Development Manager Aoife Flynn, Chair Bernadette O’Shea and Rolf Stehle- Director of the Goethe Institut Irland

Signals in the Dark: Art in the Shadow of War opened on Saturday evening (the 14th March) and the opening went beautifully. A big thank you to everyone who came out, especially those that sacrificed the Rugby watching! Seamus Kealy opened the exhibition with a terrific guided curators tour- which we have recorded and hope to make available online once we test the quality- after which everyone chatted over a glass of wine and some truly stellar cheeses- all bought from local food delicatessens from our neighbors on Castle Street.

A big thank you for making the exhibition possible goes to the entire Model Niland team and Board of Directors, Kevinsfort ( Gerry Healy, Rosaleen Doonan, and Hubert Healy) Juliana Zalucky at the Blackwood Gallery, Bartley Gavin, Noel Meehan, County Manager Hubert Kearns, Tina Meehan, Maureen Meehan, Rolf Stehle and the Goethe-Institut Irland, Sligo County Council, Sligo Borough Council and The Arts Council.

We had a photographer taking pictures on the night and they are starting to filter through. The first pics are available on our flickr page and we’ll add more as we get them.

Signals in the Dark: Art in the Shadow of War is now open at the Model Satellite on Castle Street in Sligo. Admission is free of charge and the Satellite is open Tuesday through Sundays from 12noon. see the about us section of our site for individual closing hours.
