A special art exhibition organised to celebrate Laois Culture Night titled “The Stradbally Six”. The exhibition title is based on how these six artists have come together to live and work in this creative space which historically was a courthouse and jail. The exhibition will be officially launched by botanical artist Mary Dillon who recently facilitated a weeklong botanical art course at Laois Arthouse, as part of the Summer Arts Programme.
The exhibition will include selected work by resident artists who have sojourned recently or are currently in residence at the Arthouse Studios. The artists include; Maria O’Brien from Tipperary, Caroline Keane from Portlaoise, David Tully from Dublin, Jen Donnery from Laois, Eriko Yano from Japan and Cathy Whelan from Kildare. The exhibition will include a rich and varied mix of work include paintings, ceramics and film, by the artists who have utilised the creative space of the Arthouse to complete some of the work in the show.
