Mandy Parslow exhibition – Described as a ‘wayfaring exploration through ceramics’, the exhibition is the culmination of several years of research by the artist exploring place, our attachment to it and engagement with it through the medium of ceramics.
New Ceramics Exhibition by Artist Mandy Parslow at the People’s Museum
Of Place, a solo exhibition by Mandy Parslow, runs at The People’s Museum of Limerick, 2 Pery Square, Limerick, from 10 to 26 September. Described as a ‘wayfaring exploration through ceramics’, the exhibition is the culmination of several years of research by the artist exploring place, our attachment to it and engagement with it through the medium of ceramics.
Our connections to place are deeply embedded and fundamentally inform how we perceive our environment. Open to multiple meanings and interpretations, sense of place is something known, but difficult to explain; physical, imagined, spatial, temporal, emotional, sensual. Using Slievenamuck Hill in the Glen of Aherlow, County Tipperary, Parslow aims to uncover and understand the deeply entrenched ways our surroundings are perceived physically and emotionally, consciously and unconsciously.
All the objects in this exhibition are made from materials found on Slievenamuck. Paths are explored, materials gathered, tested and manipulated. Through these organic, ceramic, animal and anthropological elements, primal forms evolve from the place itself, responding to temporal and physical diversities in the gathered materials.
While ceramics is often valued for its resistance to the effects of time, this work instead acknowledges the ephemeral qualities of place. Parslow writes “As place changes each time we encounter it, so these pieces evolve from their unfired to fired forms and beyond, questioning the notion of a ‘finished’ piece and instead embracing change and evolution in all its guises.”
Mandy Parslow is a Tipperary based ceramic artist and lecturer in ceramics at Limerick School of Art and Design/ LIT.
The exhibition is open at the People’s Museum of Limerick, 2 Pery Square, Limerick, 10 – 26 September 2020, Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 4pm.

Pigtown Festival 2020 Culture & Food Series returns September 17 – October 30
Starting on September 17, the Pigtown festival 2020 will run until the end of October with a host of dining events and more, to celebrate Limerick’s food culture, its food producers, and famous food heritage. Pigtown Festival 2020 event
Developed by the Limerick Food Group and supported by Limerick City & County Council, the theme of this year’s Pigtown festival 2020 is ‘Support Local’ – with many businesses fighting for survival this year, it is more important than ever to support local producers, market traders, and restaurants.
2020 may have seen the cancellation of many events and festivals, but the people behind the Pigtown Culture & Food Series, Limerick’s leading food festival, are determined to give locals and ‘staycationers’ something to enjoy.
Pigtown is organized by Limerick Food Group, a voluntary non-profit group from industry working together to promote Limerick food.
One of the organizing committee and Head Chef at No1 Pery Square, Keith Piggot, explained:
“We had to make some changes to our festival programme this year, obviously we are missing the annual Culture Night Pigtown Parade that would usually kick off the festival, but hopefully that will be back next year. We have a big focus on dining events for 2020 celebrating local produce, with a few online surprises in store too so keep an eye on our social media.”
The festival opens with the Pigtown Dinner at the Mustard Seed restaurant in Ballingarry, Co Limerick on Thursday, September 17.
Other dining events include the Pigtown Dinner in the River Restaurant at the Strand Hotel every Friday from Sep 18-Oct 30; Daily Pigtown Special at 1826 Adare from Sep23-27; Pigtown Dinner at the East Room Restaurant on Thursday September 24; Pigtown Specials at the Cornstore Restaurant every Thursday from Sep24-Oct29; Pigtown Pinxtos at No.1 Pery Square on Thursday October 15; and more to be announced.
For the duration of the festival, The Limerick Strand Hotel is offering ‘The Little Piggy’ Package which features one night B&B and locally sourced Pigtown-themed dinner, and includes a tour of Treaty City Brewery.
The Milk Market would usually play a big part in the festival, hosting cooking demos and food tours, but this year Pigtown wants to remind people that one of the most famous Farmer’s Markets in Ireland takes place every Saturday morning in the heart of our city with its quality food traders and unique atmosphere.
Along with that, a new second Saturday market has been launched with Crafts and Plants at the Potato Market. On Saturday September 19 at 11am-4pm, Pigtown’s Giant Piggy will visit the Potato Market for Pigtown2020 so families will get the opportunity to see Piggy in this open-air market on Merchant’s Quay.
Inspired by the history of Limerick’s famous bacon industry, the ‘Pigtown Culture and Food Series’ is an exciting programme of themed events in Limerick. Developed by the Limerick Food Group and supported by Limerick City & County Council, the series will focus on Limerick’s unique heritage as a way to showcase the great food available locally, building on our deep-rooted food heritage.
