Com­mu­nity art group opens its Carnew ex­hi­bi­tion

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

THE mem­bers of Carnew Com­mu­nity Art Group were de­lighted to be joined by a large crowd of well-wish­ers at Carnew Com­mu­nity Care on Satur­day last as they opened their an­nual sum­mer ex­hi­bi­tion.

Pres­i­dent of South Wick­low Drama Fes­ti­val Mick Byrne launched the ex­hi­bi­tion and he hoped the artists will stage a sim­i­lar ex­hi­bi­tion as a fringe event dur­ing the All Ire­land Drama Fi­nals next April.

The group meets at Carnew Com­mu­nity Care on Fri­days be­tween 10 a.m. and mid­day.

Four of the works fea­tured were painted by Joan Kin­sella, a mem­ber of the group who passed away dur­ing the year.

MC Mary Do­ran said that the two hours spent with the group each week go by very fast. Trib­utes were paid to their tu­tor Sinead Ryan for her en­cour­age­ment. Thanks also went to Sr Mary who leaves Carnew Com­mu­nity Care shortly, and to Sheila Kir­wan who re­tires soon.

View the works un­til Fri­day, July 14, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., ex­cept Thurs­day when it opens at mid­day.
