    The Butler Gallery was delighted to present an exhibition by Kilkenny based artist Alan Counihan.

    Alan Counihan’s practice engages with the fundamental human relationship to nature. His work explores how landscape is inhabited, remembered and imagined. Often employing the map as an expression of our past certainties, his work has sought to explore how we navigate the ever-changing landscapes of the future using the unreliable compass of memory.

    With thanks to the Arts Council for essential annual funding and to the OPW, FÁS, The Heritage Council, Kilkenny Heritage Forum and Kilkenny Local Authorities for additional assistance.
