|VIRTUALLY THERE: A new exhibition by artists, children and teachers|
A new exhibition by artists, children and teachers created through online residencies will be launched on Saturday 9 August at Highlanes Gallery.
The exhibition stems from the Virtually There project by Kids’ Own Publishing Partnership, the only long-term professional arts programme running in Northern Irish schools.
Demonstrating the use of virtual technology to connect studio and classroom, the exhibition showcases work created by artists Ann Donnelly, Julie Forrester, Ann Henderson, Sharon Kelly and Andrew Livingstone with primary school children from all over Northern Ireland.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a programme of events for children, parents, teachers and artists.
VIRTUALLY THERE will continue at Highlanes Gallery for three weeks only, until Monday 25 August.

|Re Framing the Domestic in Irish Art|
|There are many kinds of spaces, both physical and metaphysical, that artists play with in their work, and many spaces that we, as humans inhabit. However, perhaps the most familiar space, the one that has been the stimulus for much artistic enquiry, be it visual or otherwise, has been the domestic, or home space, as that is where our earliest and most formative experiences are shaped. |
The exhibition takes as its root the domestic in all its simple complexities and contradictions, to ask what facts and fictions the domestic suggests to the artist and viewer today.
