This exhibition is a little bit different this year as we are having a fire show on the schoolhouse grounds during the exhibition opening night performed by two visiting members of the St. Pathus Color Expo Art Group from France and a candle/ lamplight concert amongst the paintings with mezzo soprano Siobhan Terry and Friends at the school house on Saturday night 30th July at 7.30pm.
11 Children - all under 11 - in 2011
Eleven local children will take this opportunity to show their first ever works that they created in the school house during their art workshop week that they took part in earlier this month. (See News and Photographs)
Five invited French Artists from Color Expo in St Pathus will also be exhibiting their paintings along with members of the Sligo Oil Painting Group and other local artists. We expect a total of 150 paintings will be on show over the weekend.
