In a unanimous vote, with one abstention, by the California Coastal Commission, the UICC cleared a major hurdle in our building process, and we move on to the next and final approval. We are so grateful for all the support — whether speaking or writing on our behalf, participating in UICC events, joining as a member, and more—we couldn’t do it without you. Our future is bright because of you! #buildingforthenextgenerationofirishamericans ... See MoreSee Less

Making News in Ireland—The Carlow Nationalist newspaper carried a story this week about Carlow artists at our Trad Fest West Community Art Exhibition.

SOME of Carlow's finest artists had their work exhibited in San Francisco, thanks to the ingenuity of Maurice O'Reilly who runs the Made in Carlow art gallery.

Although Maurice has been based in Ireland in recent years, he spent most of his life in San Fran-cisco. Last year, when he was back Visiting his family and friends state-side, it was suggested that Maurice should bring over artwork by some of the artists that exhibit in his Carlow gallery.

The exhibition happened last month through the sheer determination of Maurice and the two others who are involved in Made in Carlow, musician Zoe Hayter and artist Deimante Stankeviciute. The exhibition took place in the United Irish Cultural Center in San Francisco, which was also hosting its annual summer camp for children.

The three Irish visitors volunteered at the camp, with Zoe giving music lessons and Maurice and Deimante giving art classes.

"Helping out at the summer camp was a lot of fun. These kids were really into their Irish culture. They knew how to write their names in Irish. Their parents are interested in keeping their culture alive," said Maurice. For the art exhibition, they brought paintings by such artists as Mary Clare Nolan, Trudi Doyle and Gala Hutton, which were well received.

Maurice, Zoe and Deimante are now getting ready for the upcoming fringe arts festival and are looking for musicians of all ages and abilities to take place in a busking competition.

"We've had the busking competition for the past two years and it's gone down very well. People love music on the street - it creates a great vibe, smiled Maurice.

To enter the competition, call into Made in Carlow on Tullow Street, or email
