Ballinacourty House and its surrounding land will be a hub of creative activity for the event.

‘Otherworld’ is an exhibition of mixed media sculptures, paintings and performance by third year Sculpture and combined media students from Limerick School of Art and Design. 

The Otherworld exhibition garden show will take place at Ballinacourty House, Ballysteen, Askeaton, Limerick. This beautiful house and its surrounding land will be a hub of creative activity on Thursday, April 28 from 12 – 7 pm.

The title of the Otherworld exhibition derives itself from Irish mythology and refers to a separate realm that is inhabited by beings different to us. This otherworldly experience is available to all who venture out to this labyrinth of artworks. This is a family friendly event that will immerse you into a world of its own.

The intriguing correspondence between artworks made in the urban studios of the art school and the rural environment that the pieces will be exhibited in, creates an interesting context that is not commonly found at other art shows.

It is recommended that you bring a pair of boots and even an umbrella due to the unpredictability of our beloved nation’s weather. The distance between artworks is not extreme so inexperienced walkers need not worry.

Work for this event has been carried out by the entirety of year 3 Sculpture and combined media along with student producers Eoghan O’Kelly and Struan Bell. In association with the class, artist Rhona Byrne has played a fundamental and vital role in seeing this event come into existence.

The Otherworld exhibition is a day for everyone with the official opening by Celia Holman Lee taking place at 1pm along with a virtual reading by Manchán Magan at 3. This artistic oasis situated on the banks of the Shannon emanates a mystical atmosphere and evokes a homely feeling as you stroll the winding paths amongst the bramble’s branches and hedges of the stunning grounds.

The grounds in question are owned by the generous George and Michelina Stacpoole who have offered up their gardens to host this unique exhibition.  

Year 3 Sculpture and combined media students of Limerick School of Art and design welcome everyone to come and experience a once in a lifetime event in an unforgettable exhibition filled with unforgettable art.
