Wicklow People (Arklow) - - FRONT PAGE -

A NEW COL­LEC­TION of paint­ings by Arklow’s Fern­dale Artists’ Group is now on ex­hi­bi­tion at Arklow Li­brary.

The ex­hi­bi­tion which fea­tures over 34 paint­ings will run for the month of July and is the cul­mi­na­tion of the group’s work over re­cent months.

The ma­jor­ity of the works have used acrylics while a small num­ber are oil on can­vass. All the works are pre­vi­ously un­seen.

There are about 20 mem­bers cur­rently in­volved in the lo­cal art group which stemmed from a class run at the Arklow Fur­ther Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre.

When the stu­dents com­pleted their course, they ap­plied for fund­ing to form a group and Fern­dale Artists’ Group was born. They have pre­vi­ously ex­hib­ited at the Sun­beam Gallery, also in Arklow. Fans of na­ture, wildlife, flo­ral and land­scape art will not be dis­ap­pointed as a clear out­door and flaura and fauna theme runs through the ex­hi­bi­tion.

Fern­dale Artistss’ Group is tak­ing a sum­mer break for July and Au­gust but will re­sume its meet­ings in So­lace Stu­dio on the River­walk in Septem­ber.

For in­for­ma­tion please con­tact Eli­nor Byrne at 086 1584349.
