Louth County Council Collection
Curated by Claire Halpin
Droichead Arts Centre are thrilled to announce this exhibition of visual art from Louth County Council’s collection. Taisce Lú, curated by Claire Halpin is an opportunity to view a selection of artworks from the county’s collection, which have been donated to, or purchased by Louth County Council, to support artists creating work. This exhibition will draw new connections and links in form, media and concept across the diverse range of works in the collection, while giving viewers an opportunity to make their own connections and responses and to revisit familiar artworks.
Taisce Lú means Louth’s Treasure Trove, as artworks constitute a valuable resource for the community, which will become a legacy for future generations. The collection is a testament to the rich culture and diversity of the artists and their work and having these pieces on public display for the first time at Droichead, is extremely exciting. The Visual Art Collection of Louth County Council is an invaluable resource for the county and the people of Louth, and this is a unique opportunity to see the works together, curated specifically by Claire for this occasion, during this limited run.
“We are delighted to host the Louth County Council Art Collection. The Council are hugely support of artists and artist development, and this collection is testament to that. Droichead Arts Centre are grateful to Louth County Council for the opportunity to host such a special body of works, and are excited to invite the community in to experience this exhibition over the two weeks” Collette Farrell (Droichead Director)
Taisce Lú is an initiative of the Arts Service of Louth County Council.
