Secret of Kells exhibition for Ashbourne

An exhibition of 16 limited edition prints from the 2010 Academy award-nominated film, The Secret of Kells, by Cartoon Saloon, will take place in the Toradh Gallery, Ashbourne next week.
The exhibition will be launched on Tuesday 8th April at 6.30pm with a special Gala Film evening celebrating the work of young film makers in the county.
Established by animators Tomm Moore, Paul Young and Nora Twomey in 1999, Cartoon Saloon is an animation studio based in Kilkenny. The critical success of the studio was recognised when it received an Academy Award nomination for the feature film The Secret of Kells in 2010.
Moore and his team went through more than 200 scene illustrations in the film and selected a short list of 16 scenes from which they made the set of prints. This selection represents the most iconic images from the film and is made up of the key scene illustrations with inspiration from the Book of Kells itself, combined with elements and interpretations of the natural landscape and wildlife in Ireland.
Limited to 100 copies, they are printed using archival quality pigment inks on Hahnemühle Cotton Rag fine art paper and are beautifully framed in deep black timber on a floating mount.
There will be a screening of works created by participants at the recent Arts Office Youth Film Festival and Stop Motion workshops held in Ashbourne.
Nora Towmey, Co-Director of Oscar nominated ‘The Secret of Kells’ and Director of the award winning ‘From Darkness’ and ‘Cúilin Dualach’ will also speak on the night, followed by a screening of film short ‘Cúilin Dualach’.
The exhibition runs until 29th April.
