Art Trip to Roscommon Art Centre

Students from T.Y, 5th and 6th year travelled to the newly refurbished Art Centre in Roscommon to view its latest exhibition called WAR meaning Working Artist Roscommon.
The exhibition exhibited work by six artists, Francis Crowe, Joseph Cunniffe, Honor FitzGerald, Dympna Molloy, Noel Molloy and Anne Rigey.
Each artist spoke directly to the students about their work and the thought process and the background about each piece. The student had a fantastic opportunity to view a wide range of  work from installation, mixed media painting,  and sculpture.
