31 March to 8 April 2018
Michael Harding, playwright and author, opens the new painting exhibition of works by Mary McNutt at The Miners Bar, Arigna, Co. Roscommon, on Saturday 31 March 2018. The exhibition runs from 31 March – 8 April 2018 with a permanent exhibit remaining on show thereafter.
Mary McNutt started painting at age 60 and exhibits a natural talent for capturing the colours and textures we see around us, painting subjects such as wild flowers, local wild life and landscapes.
“My main inspiration is nature,” says McNutt. “I just love living things and find great pleasure in studying the detail of my subjects and reproducing their colour, texture and depth in my paintings.”
Michael Harding is delighted to be involved with a local art project. “Supporting the arts in all its forms is important. More important still is being able to support local art. Mary’s paintings depict the area where I live and its wild and wonderful nature in surprising and colourful detail.”
The Miners Bar, Arigna, are proud to host this exhibition placing art at the heart of the community.
