imageThe Master of Complications. by Roy McCarthy and Zoë Byrne. A book launch as well as an art exhibition.

You really need to see this exhibition to believe it. If you have even a passing interest in darkly humorous art and fiction then this is the show for you. There are depictions of intercontinental rail journeys, ghostly apparitions, cross-dressing pizza delivery boys and a man encased in glass, beneath a tarboosh.

The show runs from the evening of Friday October 24th to Sunday November 9th 2008. Gallery opening times are Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, Saturday and Sunday 12pm to 6pm.
