Hambly & Hambly are delighted to invite you to the official opening of our Fermanagh gallery and creative hub. We would be delighted if you could join us for warm hospitality and an evening filled with art, literature and music.

Saturday 17th of June, 2017
7pm – 9pm



Hambly & Hambly is a unique, newly established gallery and multi-purpose arts space for the North West, designed around our core belief in the value of arts, culture, conservation & education.

‘A Sudden Blow, A Sudden Swift’ is an exhibition of artworks by leading and emerging local and national artists, brought together for the first time by curator Dr. Helen Sharp PhD.

Artists exhibiting include: Rita Duffy, Conor Walton,  Douglas Hutton, Gay Brabazon, Trevor D’Arcey, Helen Sloan, Duncan Ross, Heather Allen, Michael Brown, Claire Falconer, Simon Carman, Paweł Kleszczewski, Joanne Behan, Diane Henshaw 

Other events on the evening include: 

  • Readings by acclaimed writer Carlo Gebler, celebrated actress Orla Charlton and architect and poet John D Kelly.
  • Music by harpist and singer Amy McAllister
  • A Bloomsday Celebration

As our opening falls on the day following Bloomsday, we wanted to celebrate James Joyce’s Ulysses as part of our event. 

Artist Gay Brabazon opened a pot of Quink ink and dipped into James Joyce’s famous novel. A small image emerged for each of the 18 episodes and like a scattering of wedding pence, they invite you the viewer to take what you can catch and perhaps use it to enter the great adventure that is Ulysses.

Exhibition runs until July 8, 2017
Exhibition open to the public 11am- 3pm on Saturday 24th June, Saturday 1st July and Sunday 2nd July or contact us to make an appointment.
