I’m delighted to announce I will be exhibiting a new piece ‘Fucus’ at the 9 Stones Art exhibition, in Borris, close to where I live.
Uniting for our fifth group show, the South Carlow 9 Stones Artists will present an exciting exhibition of recent and site-specific works in Borris Village for the duration of the Borris House Festival of Writing and Ideas, as part of the 2014 Carlow Arts Festival.
A common thread to the 9 Stones Artists group is that we respond to the area and reflect new meanings and experiences of South Carlow to audiences; in the various media we choose, the themes we engage with or the practices and processes we undertake.
In creative ways, the 9 Stone Artists look to define and enrich understandings of the area; by examining its unique past, present and future aspirations; the geological, aesthetic, and ecological rhythms of the area and how these thread through local South Carlow life.
Some of the 9 Stone Artists are concerned with art-making, some with extended or site-specific studies of the area, others again work across non-art disciplines or connect and participate with non art-groups; all create works that transmit new understandings of this special area of County Carlow, still little known outside the county.
Our opening is on the evening before the Borris House Festival of Ideas and Writing opens, Fri 13th June at 6pm (to be followed by music by Kiwi Sean (Hoskins), Seamus O’Brien, Paul Brett and others at O’Shea’s, Main st at 10,30pm)
The exhibition opens Fri 13 June, 10am – 7pm until Sun 15th June 7pm and runs alongside the Borris Festival of Writing and Ideas weekend event.
