Exhibition at local library
Arklow Library is currently hosting a centenary exhibition of paintings by Arklow Born artist George Campbell RHA (1917-1979).
The exhibition follows on from a very successful event organised last May by Arklow Municipal District Council where they unveiled a plaque at the birth place of George Campbell on St Patrick’s Terrace Arklow.
This event has now been shortlisted for Chambers Ireland Excellence in Local Government Awards for ‘Commemorating the 100th Birthday and Birthplace of Artist George Campbell RHA (1917 – 1979)’ under the Heritage and Built Environment category. Arklow library will now build on this success by hosting 24 paintings by this renowned artist.
The exhibition is free to view during normal library opening hours until September 30.
