Ár Ré-Na (Our Times)  is an exhibition of paintings by students of Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne in Dingle, County Kerry, Ireland. The students are studying art as part of their senior cycle programme (5th Year) and the exhibition consists of a series of self portraits developed through a photographic project and realised in a wide range of media.  Each portrait is an intensely personal expression of how they ‘see’ themselves but, collectively, they provide us with  fascinating insight into the world of a group a group of 16 year old student artists living in the west of Ireland. The exhibition was opened at the end of May by Seán Mac an tSíthigh, filmmaker and journalist with RTE and TG4.  It is on view during school hours.
