Cathaoirleach of Mayo County Council, Cllr Damien Ryan, is to officially open a new exhibition of work, entitled Onwards, at the café in the Museum of Country Life, Turlough, on Thursday next (October 2 ) at 11.30am.
The work was created through the Luisne Art Project, which saw participants from Western Care’s Crann Mór Centre at The Neale, Ballinrobe, facilitated by artist Breda Murphy, explore a number of themes and inspirations to develop the collection.
The collection also features work created during workshops with artist Breda Burns, who was a founding member of the project.
In addition to the café exhibition, there is a collection of large outdoor work on display on the grounds of the museum, located among the trees on the left, just after the entrance at the main gates. The exhibition will be on display throughout October.
Luisne Art Project is supported by Mayo County Council Arts Office and Western Care with administrative support from TACU Family Resource Centre, Ballinrobe.
