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.

A Dementia Friendly Exhibition Tour for People Living with Dementia & their Family, Friends & Carers will take place on Tuesday 17 April at 11.30am. Click here for more information. Please pre-book with Sinéad Cahill at gallery@glor.ie / 065 6845370.

Nolde Talks On Tour

presented by The National Gallery in partnership with glór

In mid-February, the National Gallery opened one of its major exhibitions of 2018, Emil Nolde: Colour is Life. A rare opportunity to see the work of this prolific and versatile artist, this exhibition will explore some of the many facets of his work. From portraits to seascapes and including etchings, woodcuts, drawings and paintings, this is a bold survey of Nolde’s fascinating oeuvre.

The National Gallery, in partnership with glór presents free illustrated talks on Emil Nolde's life and work. Including a talk for post-primary and an evening talk delivered by a member of the education team, these talks will introduce audiences to both the man and his art: his techniques, his motivations and the historical context of his work.

Lasting an hour it will give those who wish to visit the exhibition in Dublin a wonderful introduction to what they’ll experience, while those who can’t make it to the exhibition will have the opportunity to see and hear about these unique works.

Duration approx. 60 minutes, including time for questions and informal discussion.

Free of Charge and All Welcome. Please pre-book with glór box office on 065 6843103.

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.
