Clare Arts Office in conjunction with the Clare Museum is delighted to present “Dúlamán na Farraige” art exhibition by Artist Marie Connole.

Marie Connole MFA is an award-winning artist who exhibits internationally.  Marie’s work is centred in the unique soul of her native Clare and its coastline. Within an atmosphere of

oceanic melancholia, ‘Dúlamán na Farraige’ unites sea-weed gathering traditions and

scientific research. These contemporary watercolours celebrate this overlap between the human world and the natural world.

“Dúlamán” is the Irish word for a type of seaweed. This new work expands on Connole’s previous exhibition at the Irish Arts Center in New York. Sublime figures of hybrid sea creatures, informed by folklore, dwell in an aquatic underworld. The merging of their bodies with seaweed conveying an intensity of human emotion.

‘Dúlamán na Farraige’ entices us to reflect on our coastal heritage and the effects climate change poses to our wild Atlantic Ocean.

This wonderful exhibition is free of charge and runs from 1st August to 1st September, 2023 and everyone is welcome!
