Féile Ealaíne na Cásca 40 Years A-Growing!

Oidhreacht Chorca Dhuibhne is pleased to announce that this year’s Féile na Cásca or Easter Art Exhibition is 40 years old!  The first exhibition was held in the national school in Dún Chaoin when the then manager of Comharchumann Forbartha Chorca Dhuibhne, Micheál Mac Giobúin invited the Dún Chaoin based artist Maria Simmons-Gooding to organise the exhibition. Maria agreed but only if she could invite local artists and schoolchildren to exhibit their work. Thus began Féile Ealaíne na Cásca and Maria will have her work exhibited in all 40 exhibitions. A feature of each year’s exhibition is the participation of local schoolchildren who will this year have visited many local archaeological sites in the environ of their schools with archaeologist Isabel Bennett. Local artists will assist them prepare their responses to the visits in school and their work will be exhibited at Féile na Cásca 2013 along with the many other participating local and national artists in many art forms.
