    'Exploring the Book of Kells' Nativity pages', A Talk by Dr. Rosemary Power, Sean Lemass Public Library, Shannon 1.30pm
    The Book of Kells is an illuminated manuscript Gospel book in Latin, containing the four Gospels of the New Testament together with various prefatory texts and tables. It was created by Celtic monks ca. 800 or earlier. It is considered a masterwork of Western calligraphy and represents the pinnacle of Insular illumination. It is also widely regarded as Ireland's finest national treasure. The illustrations and ornamentation of the Book of Kells surpass that of other Insular Gospel books in extravagance and complexity. The decoration combines traditional Christian iconography with the ornate swirling motifs typical of Insular art. Figures of humans, animals and mythical beasts, together with Celtic knots and interlacing patterns in vibrant colours, enliven the manuscript's pages. Dr. Power is eminently qualified to speak on the Book of Kells as she has published Images as icons in the Book of Kells. Rosemary is also an Associate Researcher of N.U.I.G., has published widely on medieval Ireland and Scandinavia and on folk tradition. She is a minister in County Clare working ecumenically on behalf of the Methodist Church and is based at Christ Church Shannon. The talk in the library is a free event and all are welcome.

    Art in Nature, a Photographic and Painting exhibition by Gus Ahlsved, Sean Lemass Public Library, Shannon.
    Gus Ahlsved will exhibit some of his photographs and paintings in Shannon Library in November from 13th to 30th. The collection is called “Art in Nature”. Gus says that if we look around us with eyes open we can see beautiful pieces of art everywhere in nature. He has captured some of this colourful beauty in different locations in Ireland and abroad through the lens of his camera, and some with brushes and paint. A native of Finland, Gus got interested in photography while still at school. He found an old, broken camera, and decided to try and fix it. He got it working and a new hobby was born. After he had finished school he worked in a photo laboratory. This happened to be the only laboratory in the country that brought colour photography to amateur photographers when it was new and developing. It was a very educational job for Gus. Remember, there was no digital photography at that time. In 1978 he came to Ireland as a tour guide and moved permanently to Shannon in 1981, and started a Stained Glass and Picture Framing business in the Town Centre in 1988. Gus is a founder member of the Clare Arts and Crafts Association and has taken part in a number of exhibitions organised by the association, and also on his own around the country. All are welcome to visit the exhibition. It may offer an idea for a present for family or friends, or something to hang in the office. Part of the proceeds will go to a charitable organisation for Christmas. The exhibition celebrates Library Ireland Week.
