The Carlow Arts festival is finishing up this Sunday 16th June. For anyone within walking or driving distance of Carlow town it’s well worth a visit.

In my last post I posted one of three images I created for the EXTINCTON exhibition. Given the interest in it I’ve decided to post up all three.

These pieces refer to verses 2, 3 and 4 .

Here is a link to the text…

Of course the exhibit itself is well worth a visit in person and will be running until September 8th (so no excuse!)

Running along side the EXTINCTION exhibit is Beasts of England, Beasts of Ireland, curated by Stephen Brandes, and Improvisations on the Theme of an Irish Wall, curated by Terry Martin.

Beasts  of England, Beasts of Ireland, features work from Ben Long,  Polly Morgan,Stephen McKenna to mention but a few.

Improvisations on the Theme of an Irish Wall, brings 20 artists together from around the globe to make a wall of wood based on an irish dry stone wall. This is a wonderful example of what happens when many people work together. Its witty, visually and conceptually. Not to mention a tactile delight..

I love wood I do!
