LIMERICK City Gallery of Art (LCGA) presents, Limerick Connections, an exhibition from the Permanent Collections of works by 67 artists associated with Limerick from the 70s to the present day.

The exhibition has a strong focus on painting. The diverse nature of the exhibition is an insightful appraisal of how techniques and subject matter have changed over the last fifty years but the fundamental gesture of painting remains the same.
