‘WIDE OPEN EYE’: AN INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATIVE PHOTOGRAPHIC EXHIBITION AT SOLAS ART GALLERY
On Friday 5th May Solas Art Gallery celebrates its first collaborative photographic project exhibition.
The exhibition ‘Wide Open Eye’ comes from two international photographic collectives: Echiquier (based in France) and WPF (Welcome in Passione Foto, Italy). The work in the exhibition comes from France, Italy, Ireland, Thailand, Japan, Netherlands and Norway. Their work includes landscape, human stories, portraits and fine art genres. This exhibition will bring together the work of twenty five photographers
WPF hosted an exhibition in four centres across Italy in 2016 in support of Alzheimer's Pui, an initiative to educate the public about Alzheimer's and to support a group in Taranto that provides social support to people with Alzheimer’s and their families. The proceeds from sales in this exhibition will go to this initiative. To coincide with and support the international solidarity of fellow beings in relation to Alzheimers, the Irish social enterprise called Artzheimer’s (founded by Eimear Farrell) is joining us and sharing wall space. The medium of art is used to provoke bold and brave conversations about Alheizmer’s disease and to highlight its complex issues and consequences for those living with this life limiting condition. 
Eight photographers and a photographic model are travelling to Ireland for this exhibition and they will create a body of work while they are in Ireland in the genres of landscape, editorial and art nude photography. Workshops and field trips have been organised to coincide with the exhibition on Sat 6th May, facilitated by photographic artist Douglas Ross.
The exhibition will be opened by local photographer Jennifer Richardson, member of the Solas Art Gallery Committee and specialist nurse in Palliative Care. The opening is on Friday 5th May at 7.30pm. Appetizing refreshments by Daphne Mahood are not to be missed - (www.Daphnescateringkitchen.com). All enquiries to Ben or Gail at 071 9644210, info@solasart.ie or message us on Facebook

2. Their introduction of event page on Welcome in Passione Foto (WPF)
Continua il viaggio di solidarietà di WPF - Welcome in Passione Foto a favore del Progetto Alzheimer Più dell’Associazione Culturale Onlus di Volontariato Socio-Sanitaria Falanthra attraverso l’imminente arrivo di un grande e importante evento culturale, visivo e informativo.

Quindici fotografi italiani saranno ospiti con le loro opere nel mese di maggio 2017 della Solas Art Gallery, Ballinamore, Leitrim in Irlanda, in una mostra fotografica d’eccellenza che sarà possibile visitare dal 5 al 27 maggio 2017.

QUESTO EVENTO E' SOSTENUTO DALL' ISTITUTO ITALIANO DELLA CULTURA IN IRLANDA

Curatore della mostra in Irlanda insieme a Tiziana Ruggiero, fondatrice di WPF - Welcome in Passione Foto, sarà il fotografo americano di Fine Art Nude, nonchè responsabile per le mostre in Irlanda per WPF, Douglas Ross.

Nel corso della mostra fotografica verranno raccolti fondi per il progetto Alzheimer Più, un progetto innovativo nella provincia di Taranto, Puglia, Italia, nato dall’idea di Cesare Natale e Daniela Lelli, rispettivamente Presidente e vice Presidente dell’Associazione Onlus Falanthra, che si avvale delle competenze di professionisti che già operano sul territorio e sono sensibili al problema e consiste in un servizio gratuito di supporto ai malati e alle loro famiglie che va a riempire un vuoto assistenziale nel periodo che va dalla diagnosi della malattia all'ospedalizzazione, attraverso interventi informativi, formativi e di sostegno.

In Irlanda WPF - Welcome in Passione Foto ha invitato il gruppo Artzheimers, un gruppo di artisti che sono di supporto, usando varie forme artistiche, ai malati di Alzheimer in Irlanda.

Nei giorni previsti per la mostra sono stati programmati, per chi vorrà raggiungere il posto dall’Italia o da Paesi limitrofi, momenti di condivisione fotografica, workshop, visite turistiche del luogo e reportage.
I fotografi di WPF hanno organizzato un viaggio fotografico per rendere ancora più emozionante ed unica questa iniziativa. Il reportage verrà condiviso sulla pagina di WPF - Welcome in Passione Foto.
