Shamanka "Travelling Circus"

Terryglass Village Hall
Admission: Children: €2 Adults: €3 - Family €10(2+3)

IRISH PREMIERE! At the Terryglass Arts Festival all the way from Glasgow, one of the highlights of this year’s festival is the exhibition “Travelling Circus” by Sharmanka. Mysterious and darkly humorous, the amazing kinetic sculptures present an eerily magical theatrical performance - whirring, clicking, buzzing and clanking into action to tell their story. Loose yourself in this captivating world of the imagination! Is it theatre? Is it Visual Arts? Is it creative engineering? The exhibition runs at Terryglass Village Hall daily from 15-18 August. Shows will take place every half hour and tickets are available from the Box Office. We advise that parents accompany young children.

Opening Hours: Thurs 11am- 5pm; Fri 11am-5.30pm; Sat 11am-5.30pm; Sun 2pm-6pm

“Una’s Tea Rooms, Riverrun Cottages

Opening Hours- 11am-5pm daily Admission Free

Tami’s work is based on the rich history, music, culture and nature of Louisiana. Represented in galleries across Southern Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Illinois, and Alabama, her work is owned by patrons from New York to California. A native of Louisiana, she attended Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, LA where she received her BA in art education and a BFA in graphic design. She has taught art at second level, served as the education coordinator for the New Orleans Museum of Art, and has owned art based businesses involving pottery, handpainted fabric items, art licensing and two dimensional art. Using a variety of unconventional materials resulting in a unique style, her use of rich colour combined with her spontaneous brush stroke technique grabs you at first glance. Once her paintings are complete, she likes to incorporate tapestry fabrics and vintage architectural salvage from the New Orleans area.
