Art Exhibition 2016

This year's art exhibition is in aid of the Sligo Cancer Support Centre. Last year we sold 42 paintings raising €3,200 for the North West Hospice. This year our target will be much more ambitious for the Support Centre and we hope to sell all of our terrific work on offer from Sunday May 8th to Thursday May 12th from 10am to 6pm at our art studio in Grange (next door to Five Star Fun) Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Spring and Summer 2016 Events

ART EXHIBITION 2016

 

This year’s Art Exhibition will open in Grange on Sat May 7th at 8pm and will be open until Thursday May 12th.

All proceeds from this exhibition will be donated to Sligo Cancer Support Centre, Wine St., Sligo.

Last year our exhibition raised €3,200 for the North West Hospice so hopefully we can surpass this in May for this very worthy centre.

This year we will be joined by some French friends from the ‘Color Expo’ art group who we have shared art exhibitions both here and in France several times over the years. They will have 15 paintings to exhibit at our exhibition.

If you would like to be part of this year’s exhibition and wish to donate a piece of work, please have one painting ready before Wed May 4th. You may put whatever price on your work you wish.

As you will appreciate, organizing an event such as this involves a lot of hard work,  I would appreciate all the help I can get so all offers of help before, on the night, and the five days afterwards would be greatly appreciated. A rota nearer the date will be organized.

 

CHILDRENS  SUMMER CLASSES

There will be two children’s classes this Summer. Saturday July 2nd and Sat August 20th from 10.30am to 2pm. Ten children per class.

All details may be found nearer the dates on www.sligooilpainting.eu

 

SUMMER SATURDAY ART CLASSES

Art Classes will continue after the May art exhibition but only on Saturdays on a day by day basis. Dates are on your timetable.
