Carlotta Hester
The Pure Drop
Opening reception: Friday, April 15th, 2011 from 6 to 9 p.m.
at Govinda Gallery

During the summer of 2010 Carlotta Hester made over 100 drawings in County Cavan, Ireland, documenting the largest of all traditional Irish music festivals, Fleadh Cheoil na hÈireann.

These live-action drawings of musicians, singers and dancers were created in every festival setting including street sessions, theaters, dance classes, pub sessions, tutors' classes, outdoor concerts, cross-border sessions, and more.

Musical artists from over 15 counties in Ireland (North and South), as well as Scotland, England, and the United States are depicted in these drawings.

This exhibition is a tribute to the amazing artistry and remarkable spirit of traditional Irish music and dance, and the historic musical festival Fleadh Cheoil 2010.

The show Runs through May 28th and the gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday 11-5 and by appointment.
