People for Others, an exhibition which pays tribute to many well-known personalities who help those in need, is running over the next month in McDonagh Junction Kilkenny.
The works by artist Sara Kyne are of 24 heroic people that she has come across in recent years, people who she believes have gone above and beyond in their desire to ensure the betterment of life for others. This includes our very own Helen O Shea and Alva Fitzgerald a founding member.
The paintings are both national and local and feature some of the best-known people who are involved in social and medical charity in the country.
Included among these are Sr Consilio, Bro Kevin Crowley, Fr Peter McVerry, Croi CEO Neil Johnson, Sen Joan Freeman, Fr Shay Cullen, St Stanislaus Kennedy, John Pridmore, Christina Noble, Dr Austin O’Carroll, Alice Leahy and Antoinette Moynihan, to name but a few.
“They are represented in this upcoming exhibition because this is my way of honouring these people and drawing others to read about them,” said Ms Kyne.
The portraits have been exhibited throughout the country and will eventually be sold or auctioned with all proceeds donated to charity.
