‘Perception’ Exhibition

Official opening Friday October 3rd at 12 noon by Padraig Grant

This exhibition represents the art work done over the past couple of years by the Activation Unit in Ard Aoibhinn Centre under the guidance of Brendan McAleer who works as a Care Assistant there.

All the individual paintings were done by a core group of artists who participate in the art class once or twice a week as part of their daily activities at the Centre plus a few others who do occasional work. Also included in the exhibition is a large work called “Evolution” consisting of 50 individual tiles to which everyone in the Unit contributed. This project was worked on over a period of 3 months earlier this year.

This is the first time that a group of artists from Ard Aoibhinn are showing their work in an art gallery. Previous exhibitions have been shown in the Ard Aoibhinn Centre only so all the artists are delighted to have this opportunity to show their work to the public and their work deserves to be seen by a wider public

Exhibition runs from Oct 3rd to 10th.
