Visual Art: Anseo agus Ansiúd at Ionad Cultúrtha, Cork
10 Nov - 16 Dec 2016 (Past)
The KCAT Studio artists are delighted to show their work at the Ionad Cultúrtha in Ballyvourney in south-west County Cork.
The exhibition will be opened by Bríd Cranitch, Director of the Ionad Cultúrtha on Thursday 10th November at 5.00pm with music by Ger Wolfe. The exhibition continues until 16 December 2016.
Kilkenny Collective for Arts Talent, KCAT, is a group of artists with a focus on integration and inclusion into the community. There will be fourteen artists in all displaying their work: Thomas Barron, Declan Byrne, Francis Casey, Diane Chambers, Mary Cody, Lorna Corrigan, Sinead Fahey, Fergus Fitzgerald, Karl Fitzgerald, Jack Foskin, Eileen Mulrooney, Andrew Pike, Jason Turner and Margaret Walker.
One member of Ealaíontóiri Mhúscraí, Bernadette Cotter, while visiting a friend saw one of Fergus Fitzgerald’s paintings on the wall. Fergus is a member of KCAT and Bernadette was so impressed with the painting that she proposed to the rest of the group that they host a KCAT exhibition this year. The group contacted KCAT and, happily, the idea of the exhibition took flight.
The exhibition will open at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 10th at the Ionad Cultúrtha, Ballyvourney, and will run until December 16th.

KCAT fosters people of differing abilities and allows a full and equal participation. It is felt that the artistic value of the work contributes to breaking down the barriers to inclusion in the community.
