Intro Text 

We're delighted to announce a new series of exhibition programmes for 2018-2020 for the Municipal Gallery, dlr LexIcon, Dún Laoghaire selected through a national open call.  The exhibitions will include a joint show by sisters Diana and Shirley Copperwhite early in 2018; one by Lee Welch and Paul Hallahan in 2019; and a solo exhibition of new work by Brian Fay in 2020.

Diana Copperwhite and Shirley Copperwhite come from different artistic disciplines and it is the crossover in their work that they wish to explore.  ‘Too Sea’ by Lee Welch and Paul Hallahan will look to Utopia and the end of history in an exhibition which will include installation and canvas-based artworks. Brian Fay will seek to develop new drawing work stemming from the dlr art collection; the works will deal with contemporary and historical representation and themes of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County.
