The Athlone Art Gallery, The Village @ Burgess, Lloyds Lane, Athlone, made a recent fundraising cheque presentation for €1000 to the South Westmeath Hospice.

Nicky McCormick, friend of the Hospice, opened the exhibition with some moving words about her working career in palliative care.

The fundraising commenced with a raffle during the opening of the Christmas Group Exhibition in the gallery, the prizes on that occasion being sponsored by The Button Studio, Nicky McCormick and Alastair Gray. The Gallery also donated all commissions from the group show to aid the great work of the South Westmeath Hospice.

Currently, the Athlone Art Gallery is hosting a show by Claudia Kohler. Her painting journey started in her late teens when her wooden desk seemed too boring and she started painting a map of Europe on it, incorporating different myths and associations we had with the different countries.

Claudia uses acrylic paints on canvas & has been experimenting with natural pigments and walnut oil as well and will continue to use more of them. Her work is well worth a visit.
