Cliona Harmey, Seán Molloy, David Quinn

From: 24 Aug 2017
To: 13 Oct 2017
The second part of Solstice Arts Centre’s 2017 visual art programme organised by Curator in Residence Sabina Mac Mahon sees three separate solo shows by three very different artists taking place simultaneously across the gallery’s three exhibition spaces. While there is no set unifying thematic aside from some allusion to Meath’s history, heritage or landscape, when viewed collectively the three shows look, in a general way, at the various ways in which artists adopt methods of abstraction in their work and how abstraction – of information, images and materials – relates to their individual processes of making.

Muldoon's Picnic with Special Guests

From: 26 Aug 2017
To: 26 Aug 2017
Hosted by the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and New Yorker poetry editor Paul Muldoon, Muldoon's Picnic has been described by Muldoon himself as "an omnium-gatherum" and by Time Out as a "music-and-literature extravaganza". We call it a stonkingly good night out!

To: 30 Aug 2017
From acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols, Loving celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (portrayed by Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown.

Waiting For Godot

From: 01 Sep 2017
To: 01 Sep 2017
Didi and Gogo wait on a country road by a tree for a man named Godot. All they know is that when Godot arrives they will be saved. If he doesn’t arrive they have to come back tomorrow and wait again. So begins and ends Samuel Beckett’s masterpiece. Arguably the greatest play of the 20th century.

To Hell In a Handbag

From: 29 Sep 2017
To: 29 Sep 2017
While others are preoccupied with cucumber sandwiches and railway cloakrooms, two minor characters from The Importance of Being Earnest are up to their necks in something else. A country rector and a governess, models of Victorian propriety in public. But in private? This is the play behind the play: a tale of blackmail, false identity … and money.
