Summer Group Exhibition
5th – 28th August 2022
Custom House Studios + Gallery are delighted to present an exhibition of works by 62 artists who have worked and exhibited at Custom House Studios over the last year.
The exhibition will be officially opened by artist Mick O’Dea at 6.00pm on Friday August 5th at Westport Quay. Westport based jazz trio, ‘Ain’t Misbehavin’ will perform on the evening.
Our summer show celebrates our extensive exhibition programmes including works from our resident studio artists and artists that use the print room facilities. In this exhibition we will have works by artists both from Ireland and overseas who have exhibited in our two gallery spaces throughout the year. We also have works from visiting studio artists including two exchange artists from Austria. Seven Artists from Carrowbeg Enterprises will exhibit their individual works in painting, printmaking & drawing. The exhibition also features works from the artist members of the board of Custom House Studios.
Custom House Studios was opened in 2002 by the Westport Artists Group and Mayo County Council to provide work space and exhibition facilities for artists and to facilitate access to the local community and visitors to arts events. The potential of arts and culture as an important element in developing Westport as a good place to live and a quality tourist destination is well established and recognized.
This is the 20th year of full exhibition programs at Custom House Studios providing practical supports and facilities for artists in the Westport and Mayo area – in both the making and exhibiting of art works.
Custom House Studios look forward to continuing to support visual artists and audiences, and facilitating the local community and visitors to Westport.
Custom House Studios acknowledge the support of the Arts Council of Ireland, Mayo County Council, Pobal and the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport & Media for our programme of exhibitions.
