Dogs Singing

Salmon Poetry Reading:     
‘Dogs Singing’
on Wednesday 15th December at 7.30pm
in the gallery
Mulled wine reception
Salmon Poets Read from new poetry anthology “Dogs Singing” as fundraiser for Second Chance Animal Rescue (S.C.A.R.)
” Here is a big book of many poems, all inspired, devoted, motivated by a sacred bond that happens, the supreme privilege, that something far bigger than romance – a relationship with a dog….” Eileen Battersby, Arts Writer and Literary Correspondent, The Irish Times.
‘Dogs Singing’, which has been compiled and edited by Jessie Lendennie, brings together poems which highlight and examine and celebrate the canine world. Among the 200 contributors are John Montague, Paula Meehan, Micheal O’Siadhail, Alicia Ostriker, Matthew Sweeney, Neil Astley, Rita Ann Higgins, Gerard Smyth, Thomas Lynch, Mary O’Donnell, Maxine Kumin, Joseph Woods, C.K. Williams, David Wheatley, Peter Fallon, Nessa O’Mahony, Mary O’Malley, Theo Dorgan, Pat Boran, Conor Mark Kavanagh, Padraig O’Morain and Mary O’Donnell.  The anthology is divided into three sections: ‘By’ (a smaller section, since dogs are often reluctant to describe themselves as poets!), ‘For’ and ‘About’. The order of poems reflects the eclectic mix of style and content. Readers on the night include Ilsa Thielan, Jean Kavanagh, Jessie Lendennie, Knute Skinner, Christine Jenkins, and Mary Mullen.  Proceeds from copies of “Dogs Singing – A Tribute Anthology” sold at the reading will go to Second Chance Animal Rescue.

OPENING OF THE CHRISTMAS SHOW

We are delighted that Mayor Christy Curtin opened our Christmas Show “has been + is going” and “Trasna” . It was a great evening  and we had a very successful auction.We sold 50 pieces from the 200 original postcard-sized works by established artists.

The exhibition runs until the 6th January and these affordable works, now € 40 each, make original Christmas presents. Works sold can be taken away and they will be replaced by new ones.
