Big hand for BARA artists
A group of local amateur artists is enjoying retirement with brush in hand.
An exhibition of paintings by the Bray Active Retirement Association (BARA) is underway at Signal Arts Centre.
Artist Peter Growney was at Signal last Friday evening to officially launch the show which is on until April 9.
The association was founded in 1988 and provides a wide range of activities for its members. One of its most popular activities is weekly art classes.
BARA artists have achieved national recognition over the years, as exemplified by Annette Reddan (prizewinner) and Patricia Fallon (special commendation) who both exhibited in the Golden Years Exhibition in Waterford last November.
