Art makes us get up in the Morning

Title of New Exhibition in New Space


Athlone Arts Group are holding an Exhibition of New Work in the first Exhibition to be held in the Atrium in Athlone Library and Civic Centre on Thursday 25th of April. Westmeath County Council has made this exhibition space available for local Artists to exhibit their work. It complements the Luan Gallery perfectly and gives local artists groups a platform to exhibit their work to the public at large.

The title of the Exhibition “Art makes us get up in the morning” explains the passion of these local Artists who get excited by the thoughts of working towards a new exhibition. The process involved of conjuring up the subject matter, the execution of the drawing, choice of medium and the finished work.  All this is very satisfying for the artist.  The ultimate goal is the Exhibition to the public, the judges of their work.

This Exhibition will be a feast for the eyes and hopefully it will strike a chord with the viewers. On offer will be paintings, drawings, prints, oil, acrylic, watercolour, pencil, and pen and ink. Hopefully there will be something for everyone.

You are all invited to the Launch of the Exhibition on Thursday the 25th of April at 6pm. Launch by Mr. Pat Gallagher Chief Executive of Westmeath County Council. We wish to take this opportunity to thank Westmeath County Council for allocating this space for Athlone Artists Groups and their continued support for the Arts in Athlone.
