NEW Limerick City Gallery of Art boss Una McCarthy will officially open her first exhibition series at the gallery this Thursday evening.
The new curator and director - who took on the role as of February 16 - will open three new exhibitions at the LCGA.
Wasteland by Tessa Giblin, PLAN A + PLAN B - an exhibition of contemporary printmaking curated by Suzannah O’Reilly - and Drawings from the National Collection of Contemporary Drawing will all open this week in the Pery Square facility, running until May 15.
The experienced arts practitioner, who hails from Charleville, moved from her position as head of festivals within the Arts Council to take on the role vacated by Helen Carey.
Ms McCarthy has worked in arts management since the early 80s, holding positions with the Model Arts and Niland Gallery in Sligo and the Old Museum Arts Centre in Belfast.
She said she was “excited” about taking up the new role.
“This is an auspicious time for the arts, and specifically the Visual Arts, in Limerick after the success of City of Culture and the exciting programme of exhibitions already in place for 2015.”
