‘East Meet West’ group exhibition features artwork by members and guests of Cappoquin based River Barn Artists and Group 20ten from east Waterford.
Running until June 19th upstairs at Cappoquin Library it features impressive new work in a range of media and styles. The exhibition is under the umbrella of the Cappoquin Heritage Group.
This creative collaboration is supported by Waterford City and County Office as a means to develop stronger links and networking opportunities between groups based on both sides of the county.
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. River Barn exhibitors include paintings by Felix Faulkner, Utta Hogan, Cáit Lynch, Maeve McManamon, Anna Moore, Rita O’Connell, Anne Patrick, Boyer Phelan, Margaret Whelan and Kay Scully. 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.
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 RiverBarnArtists on facebook for more information.
Group 20ten is a Waterford based artist collective founded by several experienced artists as a means of strengthening their arts practices. Exhibiting members include Pat Carri, Christine O’Brien, Milia Tsaoussis-Maddock with guest artists Martin Fahy and Aidan Dunne.
While pursuing their individual artwork 20ten members pool resources to exhibit annually, creating collections around specific themes. From 2016 to early 2019 they ran the successful artist-led Studio & Gallery 20ten, Lombard Street, Waterford.
Group 20ten provides a supportive environment that encourages personal growth, and opportunities to develop as an artist. This dynamic collaboration has enabled the group to create numerous well-received exhibitions in public and private galleries across Waterford, Dublin and Kilkenny.
The exhibition will be open from 12 to 5pm for the June bank holiday weekend and also the weekend of the 15th and 16th June. It is also open to the public from Mondays to Wednesdays between 12am and 5pm. Please note closed for lunch 1-2pm weekdays.
