Works of art at St Fergal’s to mark the parish’s 40th
St Fergal’s Parish is in its 40th jubilee year, and one of the events to mark the occasion was last week’s art exhibition at St Fergal’s School.
School board of management chairman John Heywood officially opened the exhibition, which involved a wealth of artists, working in a variety of media.
There were watercolours, oils, glycee prints, photography and more.
Cllr Joe Behan was one of the speakers at the opening event, with artist Peter Growney introducing the guests.
The event ran over an entire weekend and included some wonderful art works.
Some of the exhibitors included Rebecca Corrigan, Laura Kavanah and Daniel McDyer from Sunbeam House Services. All of their paintings were sold and their colleagues at Sunbeam House were extremely proud of their artists.
The event included a raffle at the end of the exhibition. A limited edition giclee print by Peter Grownery was won by Mary Doyle. John Tracey was delighted to win a clock donated by John Kelly of Nadurtha Design.
The annual exhibition is a highlight of the calendar for artists in the Bray area.
