About Event

Friday, November 11th - Sunday, November 13th 
Sacred Heart Academy
480 S Bryn Mawr Avenue, Bryn Mawr, PA

Straight Out of Ireland looks to showcase the incredible work of 26 Irish artists as well as US-based artists inspired by contemporary Ireland. All the work displayed highlights the stylish, modern aesthetic while embracing the soul of this amazing country. The beneficiary of the event is the Irish Diaspora Center (formerly the Irish Immigration Center) of Greater Philadelphia. 

Our host venue, Sacred Heart Academy, has opened its beautiful mansion to the exhibit and serves as the perfect backdrop to display the work, meet artists, offer small group chats with the artists and other Irish talents, and serve some delicious refreshments for visitors. The event kicks off with a Preview Reception on Friday evening followed by two public open days.
