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.

The Cast of Harold Pinter’s ‘No Man’s Land’ are on their way to the All-Ireland finals, having won 26 awards, including five best of Festivals, at the Amateur Drama League of Ireland annual three act festivals. The play ‘No Man’s Land, by Harold Pinter, the Nobel Prize Winning Author is directed by Jennifer Williams.

One last opportunity to view this multi award winning play at Skibbereen Town Hall, on Saturday 14th of April, before the finals.

Having met by chance in a pub, two aging writers continue a long night of drinking and reminiscing in a stately London home. As the night wears on, their conversation wanders through memories long forgotten or invented. Is their encounter real or a delusion? Are they strangers or do they share a past history? When unexpected guests intrude upon an increasingly surreal evening, the atmosphere quickly changes from friendly to threatening, and the encounter becomes a game of survival.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by emailing schulldramagroup@gmail.com
