The ‘Bealtaine’ visual art exhibition at Gallery 20ten features a selection of impressive new paintings by nine members of the River Barn Artists group.
The collection officially opens at 6pm on Tuesday May 1st and includes paintings by Felix Faulkner, Utta Hogan, Cáit Lynch, Maeve McManamon, Anna Moore, Rita O’Connell, Anne Patrick, Boyer Phelan and Kay Scully.
Working in a range of media and styles River Barn Artists meet in a studio near the River Blackwater just outside Cappoquin, Co Waterford. Between eight and twelve painters attend each week, some travelling considerable distances.
The group was founded in 2004 by the late ‘Wishy’ Martin as a means for professional, semi-professional and dedicated amateur painters to work together, exchange ideas, inspire and support each other, and eat cake!
Since 2010 River Barn Artists have continued to gain momentum with group exhibitions in Waterford, Dungarvan, Lismore and Youghal and individual members exhibiting widely in Ireland and the UK. Visit ‘river barn artists‘ on facebook for more information.
The exhibition is supported by Waterford Arts Office.
