Illuminated sculpture exhibition with An Cosan Glas

An Cosán Glas – illuminated sculpture trail exhibition

Unit 1 Industrial Estate, Falcarragh and at various locations throughout the town.

Saturday 23 July and Sunday 24 July.

An Cosán Glas’s illuminated sculpture-trail projects have being wowing huge audiences for the past 20 years. As part of a new departure, An Cosán Glas are pleased to announce a new and exciting sculpture project; one that is sure to be memorable; one that will mesmerise; and one that is deeply rooted in the community. Featuring eight local artists and seven teenagers from the locality, this new project will see the creation of a series of illuminated sculptures that will be exhibited in a factory unit on the Falcarragh Industrial estate.

The sculptures, as always, promise to be eye-catching and awe-inspiring. A number of illuminated sculptures will be placed at various locations around the village of Falcarragh as well – thus, adding a sprinkle of magic to the night-time festivities of the festival.
