Reimagined Realities by Margaret Alyward Community College
Margaret Aylward Community College return to axis for another exhibition showcasing the depth and breadth of their student’s work.
Under the guidance of art teacher Grace Boon and ceramicist Pat Rafferty, the students will present new work on the theme of reimagined realities in the axis Gallery.
Our annual ‘Bealtaine’ exhibition celebrates creativity as we age and showcases the hard work of local artists and art groups. This yearly exhibition is always a beautiful, vibrant and touching exhibition of local work.
This year’s theme is ‘Home’ and we are asking artists to submit work in their chosen medium responding to that theme, so why not show us all what ‘Home’ means to you? If you are over 55 and you would like to enter a piece for consideration for inclusion in the exhibition, contact Aifric Ni Ruairc on (01) 883 2123 for details.

‘Brand New Retro’ is an online archive of content digitised from Brian’s collection of lost Irish magazines dating from the pre-internet age. It features thousands of rare images, adverts and articles on Irish youth culture, encompassing music, fashion, TV, sport, design and advertising since the 1950s.
