In Cork at the recently reopened Crawford Art Gallery is where a new exhibition features the maritime traditions of the port in the south of Ireland.

Statio Bene draws together over 40 artworks describing the traditions and historic views of Cork Harbour.

The exhibition features artworks describing Cork's global connectedness, its harbour and river, shipping and leisure, defence, and mobility of people.

It considers the concept of a 'safe harbour' as an anchorage in cultural, social, and other terms.

Presented in the Long Room in the Crawford Art Gallery, which was the city’s old Custom House, the exhibition is inspired by Cork’s motto – 'Statio Bene Fide Carinis' (a safe harbour for ships). 

The exhibition also coincides with the 300th anniversary of the world’s oldest established yacht club – Royal Cork Yacht Club.

For more has on the exhibition.

Afloat adds the gallery is located on Emmet Place off Lavitt's Quay which is upriver of the city's main thoroughfare of St. Patrick's Street .
