Light to the World

presented by Bahá’í’s of Ennis

Film show, exhibition, discussion and refreshments.

There is a story unfolding. It is a story of humanity’s progress through history, propelled by the teachings of Messengers of God Who have guided humanity through its stages of development, and now to the dawn of its maturity.

Two hundred years ago, such a prophetic Figure appeared: Bahá’u’lláh. He brought teachings for this age that represent an end to division and otherness, through which – at long last – the oneness of humankind can be realised.

Discover more through accounts of people from diverse nations whose lives have been transformed by the light that Bahá’u’lláh brought to the world.

Exhibition: Friday 9 February - Wednesday 28 March, 10am to 5pm daily, free of charge

Gráinne Cuffe: Moments

Launch Friday 13 April

glór is delighted to present an exhibition of new work from leading Irish Printmaker, Gráinne Cuffe.

Well known for her intricate flowers studies, and oversized exuberant etchings, her new works depict lilies, tulips, and some sweet pea. Cuffe’s practice is firmly placed within a long-established artistic tradition that values careful and considered observations of nature and the translation of these  observations into a new visual form.

Her large, metre square etchings embody influences from Georgia O'Keeffe, from her Bauhaus trained architect father Luan Cuffe, and from working in studios in California, London, Milan and Dublin. Her work is 'not strictly botanical' and embraces the energy, structure and colour of flowers. A perfect  exhibition to celebrate the bounties of the season!

A Guided Tour of the exhibition and Artist’s Talk, will take place on Saturday 14 April at 11.30am. Free of charge and all welcome.

Saturday 28 April, 7.30pm, €10

Nature, Gardening and Mental Wellbeing – Film and Expert Talks

presented by Clare Garden Festival in association with glór

This year’s highlight event of Clare Garden Festival FRINGE combines the award-winning garden film Project Wild Thing with expert talks to be announced.

Filmmaker David Bond thinks Mother Nature needs a helping hand. His children are fascinated by screens but are strangers to the natural world. David appoints himself the Marketing Director for Nature and, with the help of marketing experts, he sets out to sell this amazing, free, wonder product. Project Wild Thing finds hilarity, joy and absurdity in the choices we face as 21st Century humans.
