Collection: 'Kintsugi' McGing's Exhibition 2019

Now in its 12th year, the much loved McGing's Open Exhibition returns. This year exploring the theme Kintsugi; the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery and adorning its scars with precious metals. It is the art of embracing damage and not discarding broken things, of cherishing the imperfect and loving the mended. The concept is a beautiful take on the festivals Brittle / Fragile arts theme.

 The launch will take place on, Thursday, 24th of October at 6.30pm, in McGings Pub, Westport. Works will be available for purchase from the exhibition manager on the night of the launch, and for the duration of the festival will be available to purchase from any smartphone from https://westival.ie/collections/kintsugi. Art can be collected from McGing's Pub from Monday 4th November from 4pm.

This technology is a big departure for us, one we feel will be very beneficial to the artists of this exhibition, and even moreso for future Westival galleries so we thank you for your understanding for any imperfections in the system - please get in touch with mcgingsopen@westival.ie if you are experiencing any issues with the process.
