GALLERY 1 & GALLERY 2
Deadeye, curated by Paul Mcaree, presents a diverse range of work including sculptural, photographic and film work from 3 of Ireland’s most important artists – Martin Healy, Lorraine Neeson and Niamh O’Malley – which touches on issues from the personal to the universal, and in the interplay of various works in the gallery suggests and teases out how the individual exists within the global. Deadeye acts a metaphor for television and the moving image on screen – the un-emotive presence in our rooms and homes, compelling us to react and connect with the outside world.
Date: 18 SEPT – 24 OCT (PREVIEW FRI, 17 SEPT, 6PM)
Time: 10AM- 6PM
A Vision of Yeats is an exhibition of paintings inspired by Yeats’ poetry – the magical/mystical world that they contain and the layers of meaning provide a rich source of inspiration for the artist, the poems are filed to the brim with imagery. Each canvas Niki works on becomes a world in itself that has sprung from Yeats’ words.
Date: 3 OCT – 24 OCT
Time: 10AM- 6PM

CIRCLE AND SQUARE
This discussion panel chaired by Eileen Casey will explore the role of ‘shopping centre’ as either temple to consumerism, imaginative emporium or both. Guest writers Joan Power and Kevin Power (Bad Day in Blackrock) will be in company with representatives from local trader organisations. The evening will feature the lyrics of WB Yeats put to music by Tony Bardon together with brief readings from Circle & Square (Fiery Arrow Press). This anthology of prose, poetry and fiction is published in recognition that 2015 marks The Square Shopping Centre’s twenty-fifth year in Tallaght. Circle & Square includes the work of Platform One and guest writers Dermot Bolger, Mia Gallagher, Kevin Power, Paula Meehan, Louise Phillips, Martin Dyar, Ferdia Mac Anna, Geraldine Mills, Mary Guckian, among others. Booking is essential [email protected]
Date: 13 OCT
ART AND STORIES WORKSHOP
How do stories or myths influence artists? How do they choose the ‘moment’ and the medium to depict the story? At this workshop we will explore this idea. Before they see the pieces of Art featured in RUA RED’s newest exhibition, Deadeye, workshop participants will find out more about the stories that influenced the artists. They will be encouraged to imagine their own ‘moment’ within the story and the way they would represent it. They will then encounter the Art Work and compare their own ‘image’ to that of the artists.
