Visual Art: Group Exhibition SPRING at the Courthouse Arts Centre, Wicklow
16 Feb - 29 Mar 2019 (Past)
Marking the beginning of the season of new growth, this group exhibition brings together work from seven artists with disabilities who have been working with tutor Orla Callaghan in the services of Kare in Baltinglass and Tinahely and Ardeen Cheshire Home in Shillelagh.
The title SPRING is used not only to suggest life and growth but also bounce, resilience and an arising source, all of which are encapsulated in the approach of these artists to their work which often sees them overcoming physical challenges and other constraints to tap into a well of creativity.
Paddy Burton, Anthony Delanthy, Ruth Fenton, Fiona Healy, Libby Hendrick, Edward Morrisey and Eoin O’Malley present a varied collection of paintings and drawings. These works represent very different journeys of personal exploration following individual interests and the continuous development of techniques and skills brought about by dedicated application.
Opening Saturday 16th February 4 – 6 pm
Exhibition runs until the 29th March, 2019
