Variety at the Laois Arthouse

The Laois Arthouse in Stradbally has announced it exhibition programme for 2016, with an exciting and varied host of artistic events taking place from February to December of this year.

First off, from February 11 to March 4, artist Sue Reid will exhibit a collection of her work.

Her work appears as a sculpture at first glance, but it is in fact a painting that has been lifted off the canvas.

Last year she was part of Free Range, a group exhibition full of awesome art which took place at James Joyce Street, Dublin.

From March 17 to April 15, it will be the turn of artist Aislinn O'Keeffe to exhibit.

Aislinn's work explores the role of early 20th Century revolutionary Irish women through a series of text art and drawings.

She enjoys painting, drawing, deciduous forests and ancient ruins. Aislinn has shown her work at the Hunt Museum, Occupy Space, Friars Gate Theatre, and Hive Emerging.

From May 5 to May 27, artist Marie O'Brien will exhibit.
