The Community Arts Group, Ballaghaderreen, will host their first exhibition in Duffy’s, The Square, from Thursday 21st until Saturday 23rd June.
The group was established in 2011, evolving from a core group of VEC students who had successfully completed FETAC, Level 5 Modules of Art and Design. This was quite a brilliant achievement, given that some members were quite new to drawing and painting.
The Community Art Group Ballaghaderreen is self-supporting, with low costs for participants, and part-funded by the VEC.
The group aims to encourage the local community to participate in the arts; to welcome all levels of expertise; to provide an environment for people to express themselves, each at their own pace, and above all, to experiment and have fun.
The exhibition has been supported by local businesses, who form the backbone of the community and the group would like to express their sincere appreciation.
On exhibition will be paintings, drawings, sculpture and mixed media, forming a varied body of work. The Community Arts Group would like to invite all local people and art lovers to the Exhibition.
The exhibition will be open on Thursday 21st June from 2-6 pm, Friday 22nd June from 2 – 6.30 pm and Saturday 23rd June from 11 am – 6 pm.
