Time:

An evocative exhibition by Galway artist Geraldine Folan opens on Culture Night in the hallowed surroundings of the old Connacht Tribune Printworks. The mighty exhibition is a result of the artist’s personal experience of painting on the beloved Salthill Promenade at different times of day and on different days throughout an entire year. Geraldine documented the work by posting a blog online of each day’s painting; during the exhibition there will  be a video running of a real-time walk along the Prom in all weathers over twenty four hours which was videoed in 3 minute intervals (6.00pm until late)

Artist Geraldine Folan will give a talk on the exhibition at 7.00pm

Choinnigh Geraldine taifead ar an obair trí mhír faoi gach lá a chaith sí ag péinteáil a chur ar bhlag ar líne; le linn an taispeántais beidh físeán ar siúl de shiúlóid fíor-ama feadh an Phromanáid i ngach cineál aimsire le linn 24 uair an chloig. Taifeadadh an físeán i gcodanna 3 nóiméad san fhad. (6.00i.n. go dtí deireanach san oíche) Tabharfaidh Geraldine Folan píosa cainte faoin taispeántas ag a 7.00i.n.
