Butler Gallery continues its successful partnership with the immensely talented, Kilkenny-based, and four time Oscar© nominated Irish animation studio Cartoon Saloon, in an exhibition response to their new film WolfWalkers directed by Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart.
The exhibition, designed by Steven McNamara of Roji, includes core working drawings and backgrounds, and highlights the strengths and messages of this animated film whose story offers conflict, humour, pathos and resolution and is centered in medieval Kilkenny in 1650.
In a time of superstition and magic, when wolves are seen as demonic and nature an evil to be tamed, a young apprentice hunter, Robyn, comes to Ireland with her father to wipe out the last pack. But when Robyn saves a wild native girl, Mebh, their friendship leads her to discover the world of the WolfWalkers and transform her into the very thing her father is tasked to destroy.
