Chinese New Year

To celebrate Chinese New Year, ARTSPACE-Pobail le Chéile are seeking art submissions from budding artists of all ages in the Gaeltacht.

As it is the year of the rabbit, all submissions must be rabbit-themed. The rabbit is represented in mythology in many different cultures.

In Chinese culture, the rabbit is one of the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac. In Irish mythology, the hare was sacred and a symbol of abundance, prosperity and good fortune. They were believed to have connections to the Otherworld. They were treated with great respect and never eaten.

Your art submission can be any style and of any medium (such as sketching, oils, acrylics, watercolour, felt pens, colouring pencils.) so long as they represent and reflect your perceptions of the rabbit in your own or Chinese culture.

Please make sure your submission is no bigger than A4 in size.

Submissions can be handed into Pobail le Chéile to any member of staff. Closing date is 22nd January 2023.

Submissions will be displayed on the premises of ArtSpace in Falcarragh at Pobail Le Chéile as well as for an online exhibition on the ArtSpace & Pobail le Chéile Facebook pages.
