September Art Network:
Wednesday, September 26th, was another wonderful night of entertainment at the monthly Arts Network Showcase in the Markethouse. Four very talented and entertaining artists of different disciplines gave us a very enjoyable and interesting night and we compliment each of them for displaying their fantastic artistic talent to us. Thanks to the organising committee, who bring us these exceptional nights and it consistently amazes me that they can keep introducing new talent and new excellence month after month. Thanks also to the ladies who supplied and served the very tasty and different food items and refreshments at the interval. The first to be introduced to us by MC Pat Mooney was Collin Walker who introduced us to his new childrens’ book - Woggleburn Creek. Collie was appropriately dressed for the occasion and told us how the book came about and read an extract to us. No doubt this book will appeal to a wide audience and spark off an amazing journey in fantasy land. The book itself is very attractive and well presented thanks to the illustration by Olivia Golden. Next up was Orla Nesbitt who is well known to Emyvale folk as Orla O’Brien. Her great talent is producing attractive and personal Cakes and it all began when she attempted to make a special cake for her child’s birthday and she loved doing it and decided to develop her obvious talent and since then she has baked and decorated many very attractive and personalised cakes for various occasions in people’s lives. Though she denies that she regards herself as ‘arty’ there is no doubt about her artistic talent. The interval was next and Gary Kiernan was the next artist and his speciality was painting. He had a number of his works on display and he described the meaning and source of some of them and told how much of his work is connected with times and happenings in his life. He certainly got the minds thinking and looking deep into his work. The fianl act was a powerful singer - a sean-nós singer called Pearse Larkin. At the fine age of 15, this performer was clearly no stranger to the stage and he introduced himself with a very mature, yet simple and humorous language which captured the audience to listen to every word. His songs were captivating and his strong yet mellow voice belied his age. A fantastic performance and one that has won many awards and plaudids in the years gone past and one that has the potential of even greater awards in the years to come.
