VISUAL ART: FOYER 29th May - 12th June
A group show by participants in The Art Room initiative, which facilitates arts workshops for people in care settings. This exhibition represents the art work created by residents from three care centres in Co. Mayo which are part of the “Art Room” arts programme: The Sacred Heart Hospital, Castlebar; Cuan Chaitriona Nursing Home, Castlebar; and St. Attracta’s Nursing Home, Charlestown. The Art Room is facilitated by artist Tom Meskell who works with people in long stay care, and whose primary objective is to encourage and support the participants in reaching their creative potential, which has a positive effect on the individuals, the centres they live in and on family members.
A film showing a workshop in action can be found at www.tommeskell.com
Official opening on Friday 29th May at 3.00pm. All welcome.
