2nd - 11th July 2021
uachtarARTS are delighted to present their Group Show STIMULI as part of OCAP's Summer Exhibitions 2021 in Oughterard Courthouse.
The uachtartARTS group have been unable to meet up in The Courthouse since March 2020 due to covid 19 restrictions. During the last lockdown in 2021 we decided to reconnect with our members by sending out monthly themes which would act as a Stimulus to create artwork. We posted these images on our Social Media accounts each day to enthusiastic reactions from both the Artists and the public. Our members in particular felt it had helped them to re-engage with their work and each other.
STIMULI will feature artworks from our Monthly themes alongside a selection of work from last year's online Exhibition RIANTA which was part of the Galway 2020 SET IN STONE project. The Exhibition will feature artists Barbara Dunne, Celeste Auge, Colette NicAodha, Deirdre Stephens, Geraldine Folan, Gil Cusack, Grainne MacManus, Jess Walsh, Kathleen Furey, Kathleen Hinde, Lelia NiChathmhaoil, Maria Hutton, Mary Byrne, Mary Doyle, Maureen Mooney, Natalie Wood Folan, Olga Magliocco, Patricia McQuinn, Philippa Maguire, Rebecca Philbin, Renske Boef, Shona Butler, and Susanne Keane.
The Exhibition will open to the public on Friday 2nd July from 4-8pm. During the Exhibition the opening times will be Monday to Saturday 10am - 5pm & Sundays 12pm - 5pm.
