Michael Harding is one of Ireland’s most distinctive writers and storytellers and his recent memoirs Staring at Lakes and Hanging with the Elephant have touched a chord with audiences throughout the country.
Now he returns to Garter Lane Theatre with his latest book, Talking to Strangers and to ruminate on his life over the past 18 months, playing the Bull McCabe on stage in Dublin, struggling with self-doubt, faith, and psychotherapy, and the chaos of building an extension to his home near Lough Allen.

Waterford Art Group Annual Exhibition – Main Gallery 4- 19 November 2016

Waterford Art Group Exhibition

An exhibition of ”New Works” by Waterford artist collective, Waterford Art Group, in Garter Lane Arts Centre Main Gallery.

The Waterford Art Group formed over fifty years ago by local artists who wanted to celebrate creativity, share knowledge and learn new skills. Since then, the Waterford Art Group has been encouraging and supporting each other to produce high quality art work which often draws inspiration from the Waterford landscape. Artist Esther Heffernan, discussing the variety of artistic styles within their new exhibition, suggests that ‘the divergence in technique and style leads to an exhibition that has something to evoke most viewers’.

The opening reception of this exhibition of “New Works” by Waterford Art Group in Garter Lane Arts Centre Main Gallery on Friday, November 4th at 7pm coincides with the opening of a group exhibition of paintings by West-Waterford artist collective, the River Barn Artists and the opening of the Waterford Film Festival.

Visitors to the opening reception can enjoy live music performances by Senza Voce, an instrumental group currently making a splash in the festival scene in the South East. Utilising Fretless Bass and Fingerstyle Guitar, the duo will play well known film scores including music by Hans Zimmer, Ennio Morricone, Henry Mancini, and many more.

This exhibition continues until Saturday November 19th 2016.
