Sense of Place, a curated exhibition presented in association with Ballinglen Arts Foundation, opens on Friday week, October 5. The Linenhall Arts Centre’s annual visual art exhibition for children features the work of artists working in media including paint, photography and sculpture. The show has been curated by the Linenhall’s community arts team, from the collection at the Ballinglen Arts Foundation. Over several visits, artists Breda Burns, Marian McHale, Jodi Coyne, and Rachel McDonnell, assisted by Patricia Halligan, selected a series of works to capture the imagination of younger viewers and offer them the opportunity to explore the theme in depth. Throughout the month of October they will deliver gallery tours and workshops to school groups. Booking for these tours is essential and can be done by calling, 094 9023733.
Sense of Place will be officially opened by Cllr Brendan Henaghan, Mayor of Castlebar, at the Linenhall Arts Centre on Friday October 5 at 7.30pm. All welcome. The exhibition runs until Monday October 29.
