MASKparade exhibition

Published: 26th January 2016

An exhibition of new works by artist Vincent McDonnell, who grew up in Fermanagh but now lives in Co. Antrim, opens at the Higher Bridges Gallery, Enniskillen on Thursday 28 January 2016 at 7.00 pm.

‘MASKparade: unearthed works – an island story’ is a collection of 92 unusual ‘story masks’ created by the artist. As well as a parade of three-dimensional masks, a fictional narrative written by the artist accompanies the exhibition.

The fictional story tells how the unusual masks were unearthed in the 1970s following the demolition of buildings on Enniskillen island and unlocks the mystery behind them.

‘MASKparade: unearthed works – an island story’ opens at The Higher Bridges Gallery on Thursday 28 January 2016 at 7.00 pm. Everyone welcome.

The exhibition continues until Saturday 27 February 2016.

The Higher Bridges Gallery is open Tuesday to Friday, 10.00 am to 4.00 pm and Saturday 11.00 am to 3.00 pm. Admission to the gallery is free.
