Slender Songs @ FILTER Cafe, Cork


A curious highlight in the programme of the inaugural Sounds From A Safe Harbour festival, Cork-based graphic designer, artist and co-founder of Fractured Air, Craig Carry will host a new exhibition, Slenders Songs, at Cork’s FILTER Cafe from September 16-October 16.

Comprised of twenty prints based upon a selection of musicians taking part in Sounds From A Safe Harbour, the exhibition (see samples of the artwork above and below) is named after Seán Mac Erlaine’s sublime A Slender Song album.

The exhibition launches on Friday, September 18 from 7.30pm-9pm with live music from Seán Mac Erlaine and Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, as well as a DJ set by Fractured Air.
