Through RTÉ Supporting the Arts, RTÉ is privileged to be part of the effort to showcase the wealth of talent, diversity and artistic expression here in Ireland.

What's on in January? Highlights include:

CORK: Stones, Slabs & Seascapes: George Victor du Noyer’s Images of Ireland

An artist imbued with a keen appreciation of the sciences—particularly geology, botany and zoology, George Victor Du Noyer is also remarkable for his devotion to recording the antiquarian and archaeological sites that are such a  characteristic feature of the Irish landscape. In celebration of Du Noyer’s extraordinary achievements, and to commemorate the bi-centenary of his birth, the Crawford Art Gallery will host a major survey exhibition, featuring over one hundred and fifty watercolours and drawings.

Where? Crawford Art Gallery, Cork, until 24th February - details here.

DUBLIN: Tradfest 2018

SLIGO: Turbulence at The Model

Turbulence is a major exhibition that explores the way in which contemporary artists are responding to the refugee crisis today. Turbulence, which takes key works by Jack Butler Yeats as it’s point of departure, considers the movement of people in today’s world, against the backdrop of shifting contemporary perspectives on post-colonialism, socio-politics, hospitality and humanity.

Where? The Model, Sligo, until 22nd April - more details here.
