The exhibition at Istabraq Hall is a selection of works from the National Collection of Contemporary Drawing and artists from the Creative Limerick initiative.  The Woods includes works by David Godbold, Patrick Hall, Seamus Heaney, Alan Keane, Paraic Leahy, Alice Maher, Eoin McHugh, Laura McMorrow, Mary Moloney, Clive Moloney and Garrett Phelan.
