Exhibition at the Ballinglen Museum of Art

Currach & Stone, Exhibition by James Edward Scherbarth

6th May - 31st May in The Ballinglen Museum of Art and

from the 1st - 12th June in The Ballinglen Gallery. 


Opening at 6pm on Friday 6th May.

The Ballinglen Arts Foundation, Main Street Ballycastle, Co. Mayo F26RX61.

Tel: 096 43184


A posthumous exhibition showing a series of 72 images created during 39 days in the last year

of James's life; "a period where he was fully blossomed as an artist, coming to grips with his own mortality, and feeling a sense of urgency to complete work while he still had the strength."


The series is autobiographical, a commentary on the emotional peaks and valleys illustrating James's deep sensitivity to all his surroundings, seen and unseen. To accompany the exhibition, a book and a boxed set of reprints specifically on the Currach and Stone series are available. Since the original pieces in the exhibition are not for sale, the book and also the boxed set will be. Individual reprints will also be available.
