Artlink Fort Dunree


Join Artlink for live music and afternoon tea at The Potting Shed and feast your senses on this national day and night of culture.

Artlink has a lot to celebrate and so many brilliant artists to showcase. Aileen Barr, founder of this artist led organisation has installed a series of site-specific ceramic tile panels around the site and a printed map will be unveiled. Local ceramic artist Matthew Porter of Puca Pottery has been working with artist Rebecca Strain and the community to produce tiles illustrating native flora around the community garden. Hannah Tucker’s solo exhibition ‘Paper Wave’, is on show in the Saldanha Gallery and includes a take away collage pack you can try out on the day or in your own time.

Over the last year, 20 Artlink members have produced a beautiful publication based on their work for “Drawn From Borders” and four of these artists have been selected by writer and curator Garrett Carr to develop new work for an exhibition at RCC Letterkenny in January 2022. Selected artists will be announced on the day.

Over the winter, over 50 people took part in online drawing workshops with artist Elaine McGinn as part of #LovetoDraw with Creative Lives. The project took place in Donegal, Carlow and Cork and a series of 60 postcards have been produced from the drawings by participants across the three sites.

In addition the “Turas: Begin the Begin” outdoor artworks remain on site until the end of September and include The Armoured Irish Elk by Kevin Harkin, Turas Arch by Brendan Farren, Gathering by Noel Brady, Forever and ALWAYS by Sue Morris and Standing Still, Still Standing by Kate McSharry.
