The exhibition will also include selected works by artists taking part in the workshops. Gallery will open daily from 1pm-4pm until 6th September.

“Only when we open our eyes and begin to look do we really see the true nature of the place, beyond the superficial or picturesque”. Various approaches to drawing and painting will be encouraged, instruction will be tailored to the requirements of the individual, the emphasis being on each person developing their own personal response to the landscape.

This project is funded by the Percent for Art Scheme and Laois County Council.
