Sirius Arts Centre presents a collection of paintings by emerging Cobh based artist, Jack Hickey. The Nocturnes is a foray into city nights of partying and going out. Exhibition runs until Sunday 10 August. Special guest speaker is Peter Murray, Director of the Crawford Art Gallery.
Exploring Ireland's social nightlife, Cobh based artist, Jack Hickey's most recent collection illustrates the beautiful, ridiculous and menacing of clouded contemporary cityscapes. his works explore the shaded underclass of nocturnal urban terrain and pursues the disenfranchised, as they search their city for meaning once darkness falls. The Nocturnes is Jack Hickey's second solo show and first exhibition in his hometown of Cobh.
Pipers Union formed in 2013 when long-time musical associates, David Power and Ciaran Somers, asked their old friend Donal Clancy to join them in concert.What started out as a collaboration of two separate acts, quickly evolved into a tight-knit trio, incorporating traditional and contemporary styles to deliver rousing ballads, soft love songs, lively dance tunes and haunting airs.
"I had witnessed...something rare - something special and unique. I had been present at one of those rare musical moments, when three 'Masters of the Tradition@ combined their artistry and had weaved their spell of music and song with such soul and such passion as to make the event for me - and all who attended that night - an unforgettable one"

Irish singer/songwriter Mundy is one of a number of artists to successfully make the transition from street busking in Dublin to international stardom during the '90s. Mundy's mainly acoustic, folk-based pop/rock has been compared to Damien Rice and Josh Ritter; however, his style is more upbeat and celebratory than either, and his jangle pop influence and tendency to experiment with unconventional sonic textures and beats further distinguishes him.
The Sirius Arts Centre are privileged to welcome Mundy back this summer!
