"Unforeseeable Thereness" exhibition postcard

A celebration of the strong ties between Ireland and Philadelphia.

Nine accomplished artists create visual poetry in paint, sculpture, print and other mediums that reflect their personal connection to the captivating landscape, light and people of Ireland. Thanks to the vision of artist and curator Hollis Heichemer, Stanek Gallery is proud to share with you the fruits of many years of exchange, travel, admiration and collaboration inspired by the Ballinglen Arts Foundation in Ballycastle, County Mayo, Ireland.
