Curated by Lindsay Merlihan, the new exhibition includes the work of 40 artists from Ireland, the US and Canada. Admission to the show, in the Saldanha Gallery, is free and opens daily from 10:30 am – 4:30 pm, until 28th August 2022.

Lindsay says the origins of ‘The Point of Perspective’ group art exhibition came about as a result of aspiring to celebrate Donegal’s rich natural resources, including its amazingly beautiful landscapes and spectacular, rugged coastline carved out for millennia by fierce winds and heavy Atlantic swells.

“Donegal is such an emotional landscape of mountainous peaks, the highest trails, and Ireland's highest point of landscape perspective”, she said. “Indeed, it’s such an idyllic setting to reach the furthest point of perspective through the process of art".
Kevin Harkin's installation of 13 sheep make quite a stir.
