Time: Wed – Sat 10am– 6pm
Location: CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery
Artist: Jessica Dessner
Title: THE VIEW IN HERE: New Drawings
Launch: Thurs 17 Sept 5 – 6pm
Jessica Dessner’s new series of drawings are explorations of landscapes and windows as frames for inadvertent still lifes. She works from original photographs taken with an old Olympus analogue camera that allows light bleeds amongst other mechanical uncertainties. Dessner’s hyper realistic drawings are poetic observations on how objects are assembled on the thresholds of domestic life, reimagining the deeper narratives behind such thresholds.
Date: Saturday 19 September
Location: B11 Bonded Warehouse
Artist: Dylan Haskins and Lisa Hannigan with special guests Bryce, Aaron and Jessica Dessner

After a string of sell-out shows and festival appearances in the UK and Ireland, Dylan Haskins and Lisa Hannigan’s live show-come-podcast ‘Soundings Holy Trinity’ joins forces with Sounds from a Safe Harbour to present: ‘Soundings from a Safe Harbour’. In a first for Soundings, Dylan & Lisa’s three guests are all from the same family. Siblings Bryce, Aaron and Jessica Dessner will share their stories and songs to inspire, alarm and humour in the surrounds of a disused bonded warehouse
in the Port of Cork.
