summer invite

The 10th annual summer group show opens at Solas Gallery on Friday 28th July.

As usual this show is also open to non-members and this year includes a range of works from not only our usual long standing members but also many new member artists, both professional and part time from the length and breadth of Ireland.

The show this year hosts a ten year celebration of the opening of Solas Art Gallery. Local artist Brendan Dean who opened that first group show in July 2007 will open this current show at 7.30pm on the Friday night.

As usual there will be around 50 or so works on display; paintings, drawings, photographs and some sculptural pieces ranging from landscapes, still life, portraiture and the abstract. The vibrant, sombre, and moving eclectic mix will include realism, impressionism, expressionism and a splash of kitch for fun. So do come along, celebrate 10 years of supporting the Arts in Ballinamore with us on the night as we launch our new website and logo also and say hello to some old and perhaps new friends also. Looking forward to seeing you there!

If you can’t make the opening, please call in during the month and enjoy the Ballinamore Family Festival which runs from13th-20th August. Consequently you might make a day of it, or certainly an evening of all round entertainment could be had...
