VISUAL ART: THE GREAT IRISH WEATHER EXHIBITION
Saturday 14th September, 2019 - 10:00 - Saturday 9th November, 2019 - 17:00
Have you ever wondered why the sky is blue? Or what makes a rainbow? This family friendly exhibition explores what weather is and how it happens. Get ready to learn about cold fronts and climate change, satellites and scientists, forecasting and broadcasting – and even how storms get their names.
Curated by Riverbank Arts Centre, this exhibition is based on The Great Irish Weather Book by meteorologist Joanna Donnelly and illustrator Fuchsia MacAree (published by Gill Books, 2018).
Joanna Donnelly is a meteorologist with Met Éireann and presents the weather bulletins on RTÉ One and RTÉ 2. She studied Applied Maths in DCU.
Fuchsia MacAree is an illustrator from the border of Clare and Tipperary, now living and working in Dublin. Her work has appeared in exhibitions and publications worldwide.
