THE Arts Office in Laois County Council will this month be hosting an exhibition of paintings by the Heath Art Group entitled ‘Never too Late’.
The exhibition will be officially launched by local fashion designer Heidi Higgins on Thursday May 9 at 7.30pm in Áras an Chontae, Portlaoise in conjunction with the Laois Bealtaine Festival 2013.
Comprising of over 40 paintings in both oils and acrylic, the exhibition will include work inspired by springtime and the growth that the new season brings to the landscape and to nature.
The Heath Art Group was formed in 2006 with the support of Laois VEC community education, who funded an art tutor - Antoinette Breen.
The group have flourished over the years and welcomed new members to join them for regular workshops in the Old Heath Hall on Wednesday evenings. Funding has also been received through Laois County Council’s arts act grants to help progress the work of the group. The ten members have worked over the winter months in preparation for this exhibition.
