Pathways a virtual art exhibition

This virtual exhibition by visual artist Bernie Joyce explores how the Connemara people and landscape inspired Patrick Pearse as a teacher, writer, and leader. Pathways sends the viewer on a journey back in time to when the Celtic Revival was in full swing. This was a period when artists, poets, and writers turned their back on British colonial culture and looked towards their own Irish heritage. The paintings on show are accompanied by information on Pearse’s short stories, the Irish language, and local history of his stay in Ros Muc on the west coast of Ireland. It gives a perspective on how the Cultural Revolution played a hand in the break from British rule and the lead-up to the Easter Rising and the War of Independence.

Many people flock to Pearse’s Cottage in Ros Muc on Easter Sunday but due to the pandemic, the commemorations are canceled for a second year running. This exhibition has evolved with these changing times and its aim is to bring an alternative experience to people in a safe environment until the time comes that we may visit the cottage again.
