Music in Glass Exhibition at the Ark for Tradfest 2018

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018

Jan 20th 2018 – Feb 10th 2018 The ARK Cultural Centre for Children. Temple Bar, Dublin

We explore sound captured in glass in this beautiful exhibition of work by Irish glass artist Róisín de Buitléar. Part of the TradFest Children’s Hub 2018

Featuring pieces from Róisín’s Irish Incantation/Ortha series, the exhibition features a series of beautiful glass objects that capture the essence of musical sound and pitch in glass form. Some of the sculptures are made to evoke the sound and duration of a musical note, others will remind you of musical instruments that look like they could be played.

In fact while you are visiting the exhibition, you will see a video of them being played by musicians Liam Ó Maonlaí and Peter O’Toole along with hearing Róisín talking about the inspiration for her work.

Alongside the exhibition display will be a fun interactive glass sound exploring area using glass objects found in everyday life that will enable you to try out making your own glass music.
