Spikey Jar Art Studio artists recently launched their mixed media art exhibition at Abbeyleix Library.
The exhibition is titled ‘To the waters and the wild’ and is in the library until January 4. Spikey Jar art studio artists included Janet O Grady, Kate O’ Brien, Nora Reilly, Fiona Clancy, Doreen Bourke and Imelda McNally.
All involved in the group are past students of Abbeyleix FEC, and have been running the group for the past number of years. They have also hosted a number of successful exhibitions over the years.
The group meet each week in Kate’s studio. Even though they all work differently and use various media (textile/fibre art, free machine embroidery, quilting, painting, resin art, glass painting, mixed media, ceramics and recently woodwork); they often find a starting point - an idea, a word, a phrase - then produce their own interpretation through their chosen media.
