The venue for what has be­come a pop­u­lar an­nual event is the Lis­more Com­mu­nity Hall. The fair co­in­cides with a per­for­mance of Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore at Lis­more Cas­tle Sta­ble Yard.

CORNISH CON­NEC­TION

In Sk­ib­bereen, an ex­hi­bi­tion en­ti­tled East Meets West has just started at Uillinn, the West Cork Arts Cen­tre. It ex­plores the his­toric links be­tween Corn­wall and West Cor,k be­gin­ning with a shared me­galithic cul­ture, Bronze Age min­ing and trad­ing, me­dieval fish pro­cess­ing, and the es­tab­lish­ment of the New­lyn colony of artists in the late 19th cen­tury. The show fea­tures three lead­ing Cornish artists, Phillip Booth, Matthew Lanyon, and Tony Lat­timer. It runs un­til July 8. Femme Écrivant (MarieThérèse) is a deeply per­sonal por­trait of Marie-thérèse Wal­ter, who en­tered his life in 1927 and in­flu­enced the course of his art in an un­prece­dented man­ner. It is es­ti­mated at £25-40 mil­lion.

‘Femme Écrivant (Marie-thérèse)’ by Pablo Pi­casso. An in­ti­mate por­trait of his lover, Marie-thérèse Wal­ter. A show of new work by Lim­er­ick artist, John Shin­nors, is on at the Tay­lor Gal­leries in Dublin. This suite of 14 paint­ings in­cludes many fa­mil­iar semi-ab­stract mo­tifs that have ap­peared in Shin­nors’ work since the early 1980s like badgers, scare­crows, cat­tle, light­houses, and kites. His usual three-tone colour scheme is ev­i­dent in this, his tenth solo show at Tay­lor. It runs un­til June 24. A1934 por­trait by Pablo Pi­casso will be a high­light of Christie’s Im­pres­sion­ist and Modern Art evening sale in Lon­don on June 27, one of a se­ries of 20th Cen­tury art sakes at Christie’s, which run from June 17 to June 30.
