Listowel Visual Artists’ Collective Presents Major Collaborative Exhibition with Local Writing and Poetry Groups


The Listowel Visual Artists’ Collective (LVAC) is thrilled to announce a major collaboration with three local writing and poetry groups for a special exhibition to coincide with Listowel Writers’ Week Festival 2024. The exhibition will take place from Wednesday 29th May, at two prestigious venues, St. John’s Theatre and Arts Centre and Kerry Writers’ Museum in Listowel.

Featuring the creative works of 40 visual artists alongside the enchanting words of 40 local poets and writers, this exhibition promises to be an extraordinary celebration of the arts. The artwork and literary pieces will be on display until the end of June, allowing the public ample time to immerse themselves in this unique fusion of visual and written art forms. But that’s not all – as part of this exciting event, LVAC will also host a pop-up Fine Arts and Crafts shop at a third venue located on Church Street. This space, christened LVAC Studio, which will also include a third exhibition space, will be officially opened on Wednesday 29th May at 2pm, and will remain open until Sunday 2nd June.

The space will showcase the diverse talents of LVAC members, offering visitors the opportunity to purchase unique creations while also enjoying a series of creative workshops, demonstrations, and more throughout the week.

“We are incredibly excited to bring together artists and writers in this collaborative project, offering a platform for expression and creativity,” said Louise Lynch, Co-Founder of the LVAC. “This exhibition is a testament to the rich cultural tapestry of Listowel and we invite everyone to come and experience the magic that unfolds when visual art, poetry and literature converge.”

A huge thank you to Kerry County Council, St. John’s Theatre & Arts Centre, Kerry Writers’ Museum, Pixel Canvas and JM Agency for supporting this project.

Stay tuned for the full LVAC programme, featuring a lineup of events and activities that promise to inspire and delight.
