Location: Roscommon -
WAR Working Artists Roscommon will present new works in Mixed Media, painting, performance, installation and sculpture, by all six founding members, Frances Crowe, Joseph Cunniffe, Honor FitzGerald, Dympna Molloy Noel Molloy and Anne Rigney. Working Artists Roscommon have been together since 1990. Their aim was to create a greater awareness of contemporary art in Roscommon and to help each other feel less isolated as artists living in rural Ireland. They also wished to create spaces for their work to be exhibited and find studio space in which to work. The exhibition will be officially opened by Mr. Maurice Buckley, Executive Chairman of the Office of Public Works. Maurice’s connection with Roscommon and Working Artists goes back to his company System Label. When in the 1990’s Maurice assisted WAR in their German Exhibition by transporting artwork to and from Germany. He and System Label also took part in the innovative “Artist @ Work” project run by Roscommon Arts Office, and has been a staunch supporter of the art in Roscommon. Noel Molloy will also create two performance pieces titled “Going Home” 16th August at 4pm and “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane” 20th September at 4 pm (Culture Night) all events are free.
