Corbally artist Maurice Quillinan’s new show, Music on the Water, launched in Dooradoyle’s County Hall the night of May 18, with Mayor Kevin Sheahan doing the honours. In fact the exhibition is in two parts, with a parallel running simultaneously at City Hall in Merchant’s Quay.

According to the artist, ‘Music on the Water’ is the final part of a collaboration between Nicholas Ross, a pianist from Clare based in Columbus, Ohio; Kent Holiday, American composer, based in Virginia and  of course, Quillinan. He’s a man who has travelled, worked and exhibited abroad extensively, Asia in particular, but who is Limerick based*. Music on the Water  works are all oil on linen.
