Bare Root is the title of a group exhibition at County Hall which explores rural environments and the points where nature and the man-made intersect. Curator, Anya von Gosseln, delivered a wonderfully offhand yet insightful address at the official opening on Oct 20. Really exciting exhibition.
The Blue Egg Gallery on John's Gate Street, Wexford launches its BRAVURA 2017 show on Sat, Oct 21 at 12 noon. Given Mary's less-is-more approach and her eye for detail one can expect a small but carefully selected array work by top artists and designers.
The Pigyard Gallery, Wexford is a lovely little space in the Selskar area of Wexford town.
Greenacres Gallery on Trimmers Lane is not just the pre and post opera meeting point for thirsty and hungry festive revellers, it is home to the largest festival exhibition making it a magnet for art lovers.

The photo exhibition at Kamera8 officially opens on Sunday October 29th at 4 pm.
