Upcoming Art Exhibitions

Tunde Nwagwe’s digital photography exhibition “Perceptions”, will be on display from the 1st of May until the 31st of May.

Tunde Nwagwe is a resident of Durrow County Laois. His interest in photography began when he lived in London.  He was a member of the Royal Photographic Society where he learned a lot of technical skills and developed his craft.

Tunde and his wife Marie moved to Durrow a year ago and in that time he joined the Kilkenny Photographic Society. He exhibited with the KPS during Arts Week in Kilkenny 2016. 

He has launched his first solo exhibition ‘Perceptions’ in Abbeyleix Library gallery on the 11th May. The exhibition was opened by Mr. Johnny Cuddihy, formerly president of the Irish Photographic Federation (IPF).

Tunde’s photographs are very diverse and include a wide range of styles and themes.

The exhibition runs until the end of May.


Abbeyleix F.E.C. will be displaying their work from the 1st of June until the 30th of June. There was some fabulous work on display last year, so all of us here in Abbeyleix library are looking forward to the unveiling of their work this year.
