The Mayo Artists Show is back for 2019!
This year the Mayo Artists Show will take place over two venues, with Ballina Arts Centre joining forces with the Linenhall Arts Centre once again.
Open to artists from or living in Mayo over the age of 18, the show presents a cornucopia of work in all manner of media and offers a fascinating snapshot of the breadth of visual arts practice in the county. And with something for all tastes (and prices), this might just be the ideal opportunity to find that elusive and unique Christmas gift.
Official opening on Friday 6 December:
Linenhall Arts Centre @ 6pm; Ballina Arts Centre @ 8pm
