Members ’14 is the 30th anniversary of the West Cork Arts Centre’s Members’ Exhibition at its location on North Street in Skibbereen. As this also marks the final year before the Centre’s move to its new building, this year’s show has an even more celebratory feel to it.

Opened on June 28, this year’s exhibition houses 300 artworks by over 100 artists. WCACs Members’ Exhibition has a long tradition of displaying the work of its artist membership in a very democratic manner. A busy, ‘academy style’ hang, both professionals and amateurs exhibit side by side, sharing the same space and given equal importance

The exhibition spans a wide range of media. The work on show includes painting, drawing, print, sculpture, ceramics, textile, mixed media and photography.

Some of the artists exhibiting this year are John Kelly, Majella O’Neill Collins, James McCarthy, Jo Ashby, Ian Humphreys, Paul Forde Cialis, Fx Murphy, Finola Cooney, John Simpson, Wendy Dison, Donagh Carey, Bernadette Burns, Alyn Fenn, Carol James, Hilda McInnerney, Michael McSwiney, Anne Crossey, Janet Murran and many, many more…

Members ’14 is an opportunity to see work by established and emerging West Cork artists. It is a great showcase of the artistic talent of West Cork and often an opportunity for art lovers to find something special to take home.

The exhibition will continue until Saturday July 19. Admission is free and all are welcome.

Dúchas Clonakilty's first lecture for the Autumn promises to be of huge interest to all: Emerging from the Shadow of Tom Crean – The Parish Centre, Clonakilty, Thursday September 28th 8.30pm.

Lecture by Aileen Crean O’Brien & Bill Sheppard

In May 2016, Kerry man Tom Crean, along with Ernest Shackleton and four other crew members, landed the James Caird lifeboat on the rocky isle of South Georgia. The navigation of that small boat, across 1500 km through icy winds and towering seas, is regarded as the greatest ever feat of navigation. They then trekked across the forbidding and inhospitable mountains and glaciers of South Georgia to seek help for the rest of their crew, who were left behind on Elephant Island after their ship, the Endurance, was crushed by the Antarctic ice.

One hundred years later, Crean’s grandaughter, Aileen Crean O’Brien, set off with her sons and partner to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps. Join Aileen and Bill to hear of their adventures (and misadventures) on the Southern Ocean and the island of South Georgia.
