The 9 Stones Artists exhibition “The Possibilities of Place” is being launched tomorrow – Saturday 9th July at 3.00pm at Visual, Centre of Contemporary Art along with 3 other shows:

  • The Possibilities of Place: The 9 Stones Artists
  • Ex Michina: Frances Hegarty & Andrew Stone
  • At Mirrored River: Enda Bowe
  • Take me to the River: Fergal McCarthy

Our exhibition was reviewed by Cristín Leach Hughes on Arena (RTE Radio 1) last Monday (4th July). It was a very positive review and can be listened to on the link below.

In conjunction with this exhibition we are launching an anniversary publication kindly supported by the Carlow Arts Office. The work of each member is generously presented and a specially commissioned essay by Cliodhna Schaffrey also features.

At 3.30pm there will be a panel discussion with some of the Artists on Carlow: Place, Connectivity and Artmaking

Hope to see you there tomorrow!

Martin Lyttle is a recognised Irish stone sculptor. With a sensitivity to the local lithology of an area, Martin works only with local Irish stone from quarries or found stone. He is interested in organic shapes and forms especially those found in nature. Much of his work is hand-polished so his works are wonderful to touch and hold. His work has been selected for the Royal Hibernian Academy Annual Exhibitions and he has completed large scale public and private commissions. He is a member of FORM designmade in Carlow and the Blackstairs 9 Stones Artists Groups.

    Thanks for the invite Martin. For some reason your post came into my ‘All mail’ and not my ‘Inbox’ so I am only seeing it now. Am going into Carlow next week and will call into Visual to see the exhibition. Look forward to seeing your work. Helena
