Lightening Strikes 14 Times!!! (every Saturday till September!)

The Doolin Saturday Market and Craft Fair proudly announces the opening of the Lightening Strike Gallery. This unique art gallery presents the work of a different local artist on the Saturday of each week on the stage of the Russell Brothers Community Centre. The gallery hours will coincide with the Doolin Saturday Market and Craft Fair, giving local residents and visitors an opportunity to view the work of local artists while visiting the Market.

The gallery has been developed to showcase the talents of artists from Clare and nearby areas. Paintings, drawings, photography, and mixed media work will be featured over the course of the summer. Some of the artists who will be featured include Kathy Sambrook, Vickie Lennie, Karl Hughes, and many more. Original art and prints will be available for sale. Admission is free.

The first exhibition will take place at the Grand Opening of the Doolin Saturday Market and Craft Fair on Saturday, May 30th, from 10 a.m. through 4 p.m., and will feature the art of Corinna Schroeder-von Frihling. Hamburg-born Corinna studied ceramics, art and education in Kiel, Germany. After her marriage, she set up a private art school and gallery. She organised, together with her husband, numerous international exhibitions in public places and her own gallery. Since 1972 Corinna has shown her work in Germany, France, Belgium, Norway, Ireland and Canada, winning several awards in Germany. Her work is published in several books and exhibition catalogues. Corinna was a member of ‘Doolin Artists’ from 2000-2005.
Her work, based on reality, often goes a more surrealistic way. Her main techniques are etching and pastel.
