A welcome return to group exhibiting for fourteen artists is happening this weekend at Tinakilly House in Rathnew.
The exhibition will feature paintings and works by fourteen artists, all for sale, with the Wicklow Hospice nominated as the charity being supported through this event.
Wicklow Hospice is part of Our Lady’s Hospice and Care services which included Harold’s Cross Hospice, Blackrock Hospice and Wicklow Hospice. The proceeds raised during this exhibition are exclusively going to the Wicklow Hospice.
The fourteen artists that are involved in this worthy cause are as follows: Eoin Byrne, Kerensa Darcy Barr, Cathy Callen, Louise Cherry, Denis Connolly, Colin Dunne, Helen Farrell, Nicola Faull, Andrew Hopkins, Hollie McDonald, Gavin Murphy, Maria Murphy, Kathrina Shine and Ruby Vaccaro.
There will also be a small shop with further pieces and products available from the various artists.
The event is anticipated to be an explosion of colour, with many different styles, mediums and finishes on display.
The exhibition will be in the main house of Tinakilly, gracing the walls of rooms on the ground floor and the walls of the magnificent staircase and landings. Viewing and visiting hours are from 12pm – 5pm Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th August.
The exhibition has been curated by Brendan Murphy in consultation with the artists and Denis Connolly from Tinakilly.
The event is also being sponsored by Tandem Irish Whiskey (infused with Seville Orange) which is being launched the same weekend.
A spokesperson for the event organisers said: “Wicklow Hospice has received tremendous support from Wicklow and beyond and is a worthwhile and necessary service for the community.
“The organisers and artists are fully behind this fund-raising event and know that opening the exhibition to the public in such gracious surrounding will lead to an enjoyable and multi fascinated visual experience for those who support and attend this weekend at Tinakilly House.”
