Curated by Alison Cronin, Members and Friends Liaison @ UILLINN, Flora features artwork that explores the plant-life of Ireland. West Cork is renowned for both the beauty of its landscape and for the ever increasing community of artists residing here.

I, like many others living on the #wildartisticway are driven to express ourselves through the Arts and Many of those artists are part of our Membership and Friendship schemes here at Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre and as such we are delighted to provide them with opportunities to exhibit their work. The West Cork landscape is a common source of inspiration for artists, but for this exhibition we were seeking work that looked a little closer, to the plants and flowers that inhabit those landscapes and give them life.
Including photographs, print, drawing, painting and mixed media from 30 different artists, the rich variety of work on show echoes the rich variety of plant life which inspired it. Grasses, garden flowers, woodland, weeds, ferns and mosses are all represented here.
The exhibition will run throughout the summer ensuring local artists work is on display at Uillinn throughout our busiest season. Join us for the launch at 5.30pm on Thursday 22 June, or call in throughout the summer to see the work.

About Deelish Garden Centre.

Over the years Deelish Garden Centre has become synonymous with sustainability, quality and value. Our selection of plants, seeds and sustainable gardening supplies, coupled with a commitment to outstanding customer service, have earned us an enviable reputation for horticultural excellence, not just in our West Cork base, but across Ireland and further afield.

Established nearly 30 years ago Deelish is very much a family-run business, managed by Bill and Rain Chase, their son Noah and their team near Skibbereen in County Cork.

Over the decades we’ve worked hard to develop our catalogue of plants, many of which are only available in Ireland here at Deelish Garden Centre. We have been sourcing plants for some of Ireland’s top Garden Designers and Landscape Professionals for decades, and specialise in unusual and tender species that can be grown in the mild climate of Ireland’s south west. We also offer a wide range of more temperate plants, and Ireland’s largest selection of Rhododendron’s: a collection that is ever expanding.
