Upcoming exhibitions at 8 Cows Gallery, Allihies

May 21 to June 5

GOND ARTISTS, “The Heartbeat of India”

The first exhibition in Ireland of Gond tribal art.

Patangarh is a peaceful tribal village in the state of Madhya Pradesh, right in the center of India. The Gond people live a very simple life, in total harmony with the nature, and their ancestral way to talk about their culture has always been through art. A hub of incredible and heart-full talents.

I came across this village by chance, 4 years ago, and ever since I have made my best to support the survival of this beautiful and fragile culture…

All the money from the sales is going back to Patangarh !…

The show is a new collection of works on paper or canvas that I brought back from my recent visit to India.

June 10 ( Michael Dwyer festival week end) to End of June

KIP LOT, “The Beara Light”

Exhibition and official book launch of Kip’s book “The Beara Light”

Originally from Texas, Kip lives between the South of France and the Beara. Artist and professional photographer, his eye captures the landscape of our hills and coastline with an exceptional talent, waiting for the exact second where the lights makes it magical.

The large scale photographs, on archival paper, are absolutely breathtaking.

Kip’s love for the Beara led him this year to make a book with a local poet, Geoff Ward: “The Beara Light”…

July and August


This summer in Allihies, the gallery will host various new paintings by Nadette, oils and watercolours, as well as her jewellery and travels treasures… Call in on your way between the beach and the village for a chat !

Weather permitting, I’m also happy to offer the garden space for art and crafts stalls if any local creator interested !…
