Painting the Modern Garden: Movie Screening & Early Bird Meal

The Royal Academy of Arts, London has teamed up with the Cleveland Museum of Art to stage

Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse.

This exhibition runs at the Royal Academy of Arts until April 20th.

Those of us who won’t get the chance to travel to London for this exhibition are fortunate that Exhibition On Screen is bringing us a film associated with it. You can read more by clicking here..

For one screening only, The Gate Cinema will show this film on Tuesday April 12th at 6.30p.m. It is a 90 minute film.

Tickets cost €10.50 including booking fee and may be booked directly by  contacting the Gate Cinema. Early booking is advised!

If you would like to join a group of RTAI members for an Early Bird meal before the cinema, we have arranged with Currans Restaurant, Adelaide Street, for a meal at 5p.m.

The nearest off-street parking for both venues is Paul Street multi-storey car park, which is open till midnight.

PLEASE CONTACT MAGS MCCARTHY BEFORE FRIDAY 8TH APRIL TO RESERVE THE EARLY BIRD MEAL.

Rambling tale!

IMG-20160218-WA0001On Thursday 18th February 2016, our Ramblers group took to the hills in North Cork. They climbed Sliabh an Iolair (Mount Hillary) in the Boggeraghs. Lá breá gréine a bhí ann, agus bhí radharc breá acu siar chuig Ceann Toirc agus na  bailte eile mórthimpeall.

Thanks for submitting the photos!

Visit to Crawford Exhibition

On 3rd February 2016 a group visited the Crawford Gallery, Emmet Place, Cork, to have a guided tour of the exhibiton: “The Language of Dreams”.

This exhibition focused on the Irish artists of the 20th Century who were influenced by mysticism and the fantastical. We were guided through the exhibition, from the Theosophists of the Celtic Twilight through the surrealists and the quasi abstract, such as Mary Swanzy, Gerard Dillon, Brian Boydell et al. All present agreed that the guided tour was of great benefit in understanding and contextualising the paintings and sculpture on view.

Due to limit on numbers by the gallery,  not everyone who applied got a place on this tour. Further visits to future exhibitions will be arranged.
