The launch of Brenda Exons Book 'Moxie and the Kite-Bite'n 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 website: 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 IT.

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.
