Ports, Past and Present


14.5.2022 - 25.6.2022



Peter StevensonThis art exhibition views five ports and their communities on either side of the Irish sea: Dublin, Rosslare, Holyhead, Fishguard and Pembroke Dock.

Ports, Past and Present aims to bring life and colour to the five ports, enhancing the experience of modern travellers of all ages and interests, and encouraging visitors to spend longer exploring the port towns and their environs. As part of this project, writers and visual artists have been commissioned to work with the port communities and project staff to explore stories and themes relevant to the history and culture of the five port towns and the journeys made across the Irish Sea. This exhibition showcases the work that the artists have made during their residencies.
