Cow House Studios & Bealtaine Festival 2015

Artists’ Presentation and Discussion: Friday May 1st, 2:30pm

Cow House Studios is currently hosting a residency in partnership with the Bealtaine Festival run by Age and Opportunity. This residency brings together three visual artists with different relationships to Ireland- those who left the country, those who remained here and those who made Ireland their home; Tina Keane, Grace Weir and Kevin Atherton.

Over the course of the residency which takes place from April 20th to May 2nd, the artists will explore their practices individually and together, and the relationship of their practices to time and place.

A public presentation and discussion with the artists, facilitated by curator Catherine Marshall and cultural director Tara Byrne will take place at Cow House Studios at 2:30pm on Friday May 1st.
