Artists' Circle exhibition
Bray Artists' Circle meets weekly at St. Cronan's to paint and draw and the group will be exhibiting their work at Signal Arts Centre from Tuesday March 4 until Sunday March 16.
The members have been coming together since 2003. Each person in the group pursues their own style, technique, medium and subject matter in a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere, sharing with friends the progress they have made over the week.
The group of over 30 members varies in age, experience and skill but the enjoyment and learning within the group brings them back week after week. 'Many have showcased and sold their work, but that is not the motivation. Sharing time and ideas is what generates the enthusiasm of the novice and professional artist members alike,' said a spokesperson for the circle.
They also hold two workshops per year which are run by guest artists. This is a very important part of the Bray Artists' Circle agenda as it enables the members to work alongside professional artists.
They see not just the special techniques used but more importantly the get an insight into the philosophy that underpins the work of the guest tutor.
They met every Monday night at St. Cronan's school from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The official opening reception for the exhibition will take place at 7 p.m. on Friday March 7 with special guest artist Patricia O'Farrell.
