This October Ethiopiaid, in partnership with the Makush Art Gallery, hosted the largest ever exhibition of Ethiopian art in Ireland to celebrate 15 years of Ethiopiaid charity work on health, education and women's welfare in Ethiopia.

The Art Exhibition was officially opened on October 12th by Ireland’s best known columnist and broadcaster John Masterson and celebrity chef Kevin Thornton, who has been involved with charitable work in Ethiopia for almost ten years.

The style of art emerging from Ethiopia is unique to Africa, given the country’s history of independence and multiculturalism. Over 200 paintings from Ethiopian artists, celebrating the best of the African nation’s modern art, were on display until October 15th.
