Athlone Arts Group will open a new exhibition in Athlone Towncentre on Monday, December 12 entitled Paintings on a Balcony.
The works on display will be an eclectic mix of subjects and mediums. There will be contemporary art, traditional landscape, pen and ink, watercolour, and oil on display. This exhibition is the culmination of the year’s work. The art is also for sale and reasonably priced. In addition there will be prints available for purchase.
This year the group has a new member from Spain who does beautiful watercolours of scenes from his native country and local scenes from around Athlone.
The Athlone Arts Group has survived for 36 years despite the lack of funding available to it. The group is eternally grateful to its main sponsor, Westmeath County Council.
The group would like to wish one and all a very merry Christmas and is encouraging everyone to shop local this festive season to aid the local economy.
So head on down to the balcony in the Towncentre between December 12 and 18 for Paintings on a Balcony, it will not disappoint.
