Ballycroy National Park Visitors Centre has been a privileged host to a hive of artistic activity for the past two weeks with the Mayo Art Squad, the Good Dead Guides (UK ), as well as invited Irish based artists collaborating on the EU funded art project I Could Read the Sky.
The exciting work being created complements the concept of the visitor centre, which is to interpret the habitat of the Atlantic blanket bog of the Ballycroy National Park. Using organic and recycled materials and a variety of different art mediums, the artists are reflecting the landscape’s flora and fauna, mythology, and habitatation.
During the two day exhibition event this weekend the visitor centre will house the more delicate art pieces and the Daithí Bán trail is going to be turned into an outdoor art gallery where these amazing creations will be on display for the general public to experience. I Could Read the Sky takes place on Saturday April 13 and Sunday April 14, from 1pm to 6pm, in The Ballycroy National Park grounds and visitor centre and admission is free.
