PORTRÁIDÍ ÓIR AGUS PORTRÁIDÍ EILE’
To celebrate the launch of Bliain na Gaeilge and Seachtain na Gaeilge, the Laois Arthouse, Stradbally, Co Laois, hosted Portráidí Óir agus Portraidí eile by Pádraig Ó Flannabhra from the Wednesday 21st March at 1.30pm. The exhibition was launched by poet and writer in Residence for Kerry County Council Annemarie Ní Churráin.
Pádraig Ó Flannabhra has been a Photographer for most of his life and a full time professional since 1984, when he established his Photoart Studio, specializing in Portraiture, Landscape and Press work. He has exhibited widely in Ireland and abroad, notably in the UK and at the ‘Festival Interceltique de Lorient, France, winning many awards for his creative work.
The title PORTRÁIDÍ ÓIR’, not only reflects his love and support for our first language but, the exhibits also includes 10 Gold Portrait Awards, which he was presented with from 2004 onwards by Kodak. The Stradbally showing of his work was the first time the Gold Award Portraits will be exhibited together in an exhibition. .
