Ash'. "A brash young boy named Moxie and his concerned
companion, Mr. Cat, go out one day to fly a kite - Moxie's
prized kite, the Apollo Pan. While searching for a good spot
to send Pan soaring, a tumble down a hillside places the boy,
the kite, and the cat in the perfect meadow - perfect except
for one tree... BEWARE! Brenda will perform a reading on the
night. Books can be ordered directly from the Austin Macauley
as well as Amazon.
An Exhibition in The Ballinglen Gallery: 'In Between' by Fumi
Makasi. "I’m always curious and look at things
which are “in between” every day in my life that
is undefined - not a specific place, time, species, and feelings.
These “in between” elements trigger my imagination
and reflect my art. In this exhibition,
I also aim to include
my experience in my Ballinglen art residency programme in
which I saw, perceived, and encountered through my lens."
Fumi is the winner of the emerging student award at Sligo
The award includes
a two week residency at Ballinglen, a small stipend, plus
an Exhibition in
The Ballinglen Gallery
- all sponsored by The Ballinglen Arts Foundation.
