In Philadelphia, Irish civic leaders discuss Brexit’s harsh impact on their homeland
The Philadelphia Inquirer

In Philadelphia this week, a group of Irish men and women are gathered, reflecting the success of the 1998 Good Friday Agreement in bringing peace to Northern Ireland.

But they worry that a looming Brexit — and the British parliament’s hapless efforts to exit the European Union — are already threatening Ireland’s peace. And they wish that the United States, which god fathered the Good Friday deal, would take an active role in its preservation.

They know from personal experience the ugliness that awaits Ireland if the accord fails.

“Unforeseeable Thereness”, an exhibition celebrating the strong ties between Philadelphia and Ireland at Stanek Gallery, 242 N. 3rd Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106 on Friday, May 3rd.

Nine accomplished artists create visual poetry in paint, sculpture, print and other mediums that reflect their personal connection to the captivating landscape, light and people of Ireland. Thanks to the vision of artist and curator Hollis Heichemer, Stanek Gallery is proud to share with you the fruits of many years of exchange, travel, admiration and collaboration inspired by the Ballinglen Arts Foundation in Ballycastle, County Mayo, Ireland.
