On St Patrick’s Day from 9.30am-2pm, local artist Rosemarie Langtry will host an open studio in Ballinahown Hall, where she will invite the public to experience an artist studio, and be available to meet people and talk about her work.
Why not also join in the annual Big Breakfast in Ballinahown Hall on St Patrick’s Day from 9.30am-1pm? A full breakfast is only €5 and funds raised go to Ballinahown National School.
Rosemarie is a visual artist who paints mainly in encaustic. She previously had studios in Belmont Mill, Abbey Road Artist Studios, and Making Space, before moving to her new studio in Ballinahown Hall.
Her work explores the atmosphere of local landscapes and incorporates beauty, history, and the myths surrounding the Irish boglands. The paintings encapsulate bog flora which are preserved in the wax medium known as encaustic, a combination of beeswax, pigment, and resin, which is fused layer upon layer.
Rosemarie works in the community facilitating art and craft classes for children, women’s groups, and active retirement groups. Her plan is to provide a programme of classes throughout the year to include stained glass, mosaic, painting, and encaustic. She welcomes any suggestion for a creative event.
Her current exhibition Submerged, based on recent flooding events, is on show in Ballinasloe Library until March 25, and will be on display in the County Buildings in Mullingar from May 1-15.
