Wexford Arts Centre, Cornmarket, Wexford
Living Arts Project Exhibition 2016-17 in association with Wexford County Council and the Arts Council.
The Living Arts Project was established in 2013 as a long term visual arts educational scheme, supporting the existing partnership between Wexford Arts Centre and the Arts Department of Wexford County Council. The aim of this project is to provide children with an understanding and appreciation of contemporary art. The project also seeks to support the primary school curriculum by introducing teachers to new techniques and teaching methods. The Living Arts Project exhibition represents a selection of work produced by the participating schools and artists, offering pupils and their families a chance to see their work presented in a professional gallery. Exhibition opened by County Arts Officer Liz Burns.
The following artists and schools were selected to participate in this year’s programme: Mary Claire Kehoe with St. Patrick’s National School, Gorey, Co.Wexford; David Begley with Cushinstown National School, Foulksmills, Co. Wexford; Tara McGinn with Kennedy Park National School, Wexford Town and Oonagh Latchford, Our Lady of Fatima National School, Wexford Town.
