Monday 16th April - Sunday 29th April 2018


Signal Arts Centre is delighted to be exhibiting works by the Kinvara Nursing Home.


'Woke up, fell out of bed,

Dragged a comb across my head

Found my way downstairs and drank a cup,

And looking up I noticed I was late.

Found my coat and grabbed my hat

Made the bus in seconds flat

Found my way upstairs and had a smoke,

Somebody spoke and I went into a dream.'



'A Day in the Life' is a collection of art portraying the vast and exciting talents of the residents and artists of Kinvara Nursing Home.


This group of artworks capture significant memories that each individual resident has come to experience growing up in Ireland. The inspiration reminisces on moments such as climbing Nelsons Pillar, long evenings strolling through Delgany wood, screaming to their hearts content on the dodge ‘ems, ploughing season in Wexford, ladies at the flower stalls in Dublin city, James Joyce and the hustle and bustle along Bray promenade among many happy recollections.


Once a week the residents attend art classes where they engage in a multitude of exciting and creative exercises, some familiar, majority not, which brings elements of enthusiasm and curiosity that can be seen in the pieces here today.


The work evokes a sense of nostalgia whilst accompanying contemporary ideas and methods through a variety of mediums.


Opening Reception: Sunday 22nd April from 3 - 5 pm


All Welcome!
