The Arts Office in Laois County Council will be hosting The Druid Art Group’s annual exhibition at Áras an Chontae.

The exhibition will be launched on Thursday November 28 at 6pm by Artist Tom Joyce.

The Druid Art Group has existed in its present form since 2006 although several members know each other from an earlier group. The group meets on Thursday evenings in the Methodist Church Hall. There are currently 11 regular attendees, several of whom have been attending since the group’s foundation.

The range of styles, like the level of experience and skill, varies widely. Although the majority of the group are hobbyists with little formal training, the group includes a highly skilled water-colourist who has taught painting professionally. Landscapes, flowers, animals and abstract concepts all feature in this group’s output which has been exhibited in the Methodist hall in past years as well as other recent events.
