Artist Tara O’Donoghue opens her new exhibition this weekend on Sherkin Island. 

Weekend loves: This week’s must do, see & buy

She completed her BA Honours Degree in Visual Arts on the island last year, part of a unique programme offered by DIT. 

Bright colours, shapes and structures are the hallmark of Tara’s work. 

She is primarily interested in strong bright colours, and this exhibition references images of animals, birds and flora. 

An Irish artist to watch.

Earrings for the Frogs runs until July 15 at Sherkin Island Community Hall.
