From Tuesday 20th November to Sunday 2nd December 2007
Signal Arts Gallery in Bray will host a unique exhibition of artwork produced by a group of students who attend the Training and Resource Centre in Dun Laoghaire. The Resource Centre is part of St. John of God Carmona Services which provides day services, training, work opportunities, residential and respite care in South East Dublin and East Wicklow areas. This exhibition consists of a variety of work including paintings, ceramics, batiks and photography.
The artwork was created as part of the training programme in the centre over the last year. The ceramic work was produced as a result of students attending a course at Signal Arts Centre. Another exciting aspect of the creation of this work was the group travelling to Brayeach week and availing of the opportunity to view the various exhibitions on show there.
The artists chose the title of the exhibition themselves, which indicates the enjoyment they got out of creating this artwork and working towards this exhibition. Some of the work on view will also be submitted for the students' FETAC Certification.
This exhibition is a celebration of the talent of the students and they are all delighted to be showing their work in the Signal Arts Centre. They look forward to it being well supported by the local community and the artists' families and friends. We're also delighted the the Cathaoirleach of Bray County Council, Brid Collins, has kindly offered to open the exhibition.
Opening Reception: Thursday 22nd November 7-9pm
