Shaping Ireland: Nationwide Talks

Shaping Ireland: Landscapes in Irish Art is an exhibition spanning 250 years from the mid-eighteenth century to the present day. All four provinces are represented through both art and artists, and of the fifty artists included, twenty are living and working today.
