Luan Gallery prepares for Culture Night 2020

Culture Night 2020 takes place on Friday 18th September and Luan Gallery is delighted to safely offer a varied programme of events.

On September 18th the gallery opening hours will be extended to 7pm and visitors will have a final opportunity to view our current group exhibition CROWDED THRESHOLDS curated by Fiona Mulholland.

Highlighting some of Irelands best known talents in Applied Arts, this group exhibition offers a humorous and thought-provoking presentation of the ‘emotional geography’ of its makers. It generates interesting visual interplay between authentic storytelling and artistic expression, with infectious imagination.

For those unable to visit the gallery in person on Culture Night, CROWDED THRESHOLDS can be taken in virtually, as a specially commissioned walkthrough will be available, via the gallery website www.luangallery.ie and social channels. Weaving its way through the gallery, providing closeup inspections of the works, the video offers a unique perspective of the exhibition and its relationship to the historied architecture of the gallery building.

In addition to this, Luan Gallery is delighted to announce that from 12pm to 7pm Valeria Ceregini, Curator of the upcoming exhibition OVER NATURE, will be hosting an Instagram take over on Luan Gallery’s account. Valeria will give an insight into her motivations for the exhibition, an overview of the work on exhibitions as well as answering questions from the gallery followers. Touring six venues across Ireland and the UK, Over Nature offers a new optical experience, greater ecological awareness and responsibility towards the landscape and environment which surround us.

Luan Gallery would like to assure its visitors that it will remain operating at a limited capacity whilst adhering to Government guidelines including social distancing, one way system and capacity thresholds firmly in place. In line with the Government guidelines on Covid-19, face masks are required to be worn in the gallery at all times and hand sanitising stations are available through-out the premises.

Culture Night 2020 at Luan Gallery is generously supported by the Westmeath County Council Arts Office.

Additional information can be found at: www.luangallery.ie or contact info@luangallery.ie or follow the gallery social channels for further details.

Luan Gallery is open to the public Tuesday to Saturday from 11am – 5pm and Sundays from 12 – 5pm
