“Council’s Arts team has brought together an inspiring celebration of our artistic heritage which allows people to get up close with some of the significant items which illustrate our shared culture over the last 100 years.

“I was delighted to see pieces made by ceramicist Adam Frew and glass artist Catherine Keenan, who are based in a studio in Aghadowey, not far from where I live, among the beautiful items on display. Our art centres and museums are custodians of our shared past through their collections and I am very pleased that we are showcasing this through this very special exhibition.”

Causeway Collection 100 features a wealth of visual arts and sculptures including works by Basil Blackshaw, Diarmuid Delargy, Micky Donnelly, Charles McAuley, Michael McGuinness, Ross Wilson, Norman Wilkinson and many more.

A creative learning programme suitable for all ages has also been created to run alongside the exhibition.

The exhibition continues until September 11.
