TAISPEÁNTAS 1: FÉINPHORTRÁID OLA AR CHANBHÁS ARNA SPREAGADH AG SAOTHAIR DAVID HOCKNEY

Is taispeántas iontach d’obair ealaíne chomhaimseartha é seodéanta ag cónaitheoirí Lóiste Ghleann an Léana. Tá sí á cur artaispeáint mar chuid d’Fhéile Sláinte agus Leasa Arts Care, Here & Now, agus Older People’s Arts.

Is é dathanna téama an taispeántais seo agus ba iad saothair David Hockney, a mheastar mar dhuine de na healaíontóirí is mó tionchair sa 20ú céad, an spreagadh a bhí taobh thiar de.

Arna chruthú ag cónaitheoirí Lóiste Ghleann an Léana le hEalaíontóir Tionscadail Arts Care, Cheryl Bleakley.

TAISPEÁNTAS 2: SAOTHAR ARNA SPREAGADH AG AN EALAÍONTÓIR MHEICSICEACH FRIDA KAHLO

Is é saothar an ealaíontóra Mheicsicigh Freida Kahlo an spreagadh don taispeántas seo. Bhí teicstílí agus olann mar chuid thábhachtach d’fhaisin Mheicsiceacha agus is duine íocónach ar fud an domhain í féin Freida. Bhain cónaitheoirí Lóiste Ghleann an Léana úsáid as abhrais, feilt lámhdhéanta, maisiú coirníneach agus fuáil le babóga a mhaisiú in ómós dhuine de na healaíontóirí ba mhó cáil dá raibh ann ar an domhan riamh.

Tá íomhánna frámaithe, ceardaíocht pháipéir shíoda agus meáin de dhathanna sa taispeántas chomh maith.

Arna chruthú ag cónaitheoirí Lóiste Ghleann an Léana le hEalaíontóir Tionscadail Arts Care, Anne Quail.
