The Wild Atlantic Roads – Art Exhibition by Kilrush Art Group
1st July 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 12th July 2019 @ 5:00 pm
Kilrush Art Group is a collective of amateur artists from West Clare with an interest in painting who meet every Monday. It was founded by the late Connie Farrell in 1980 and currently has 15 members. Throughout the year they organise workshops with visiting artists.
One of our workshops this year included encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting. It involves using heated beeswax to which coloured pigments are added.
We use a mix of media including watercolours, acrylic and oil paints in our work. It is mainly inspired by the natural scenery found here at home in West Clare, in the seaside and woodland areas surrounding Kilrush and Kilkee, hence the name Wild Atlantic Roads.
The Wild Atlantic Roads will run from the 1st – 12th of July, all are welcome to the exhibition.
