BARA mem­bers ex­hibit art

Bray People - - THE NOTEBOOK WICKLOW -

MEM­BERS of Bray Ac­tive Re­tire­ment As­so­ci­a­tion will ex­hibit their art at Sig­nal Arts Cen­tre un­til Sun­day Jan­uary 13.

The as­so­ci­a­tion was founded in 1988 and pro­vides a wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties for its mem­bers.

One of its most pop­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties is a weekly art class geared to de­velop each in­di­vid­ual's par­tic­u­lar in­ter­ests along with the artis­tic skills to ex­press them.

BARA artists have achieved na­tional recog- ni­tion over the years, as ex­em­pli­fied by An­nette Reddan (prizewin­ner) and Pa­tri­cia Fal­lon (spe­cial com­men­da­tion) who both ex­hib­ited in the Golden Years Ex­hi­bi­tion in Water­ford in Novem­ber.

The cur­rent ex­hi­bi­tion in Sig­nal pro­vides the artists with an op­por­tu­nity to show­case their work to the lo­cal com­mu­nity and is an­other step in their artis­tic devel­op­ment.

The show was of­fi­cially opened last week by Peter Growney, a well known lo­cal artist.
