Art works sold out at Clancy Festival fundraiser

All 30 art works donated to a special art sale to raise funds for the upcoming Clancy Brothers Music & Arts Festival art trail were snapped up by eager buyers at the Tudor Artisan Hub last Friday night.

Fair City actress Bairbre Scully O'Toole from Kilsheelan was among the record attendance at the event. Her mother is a student of artist Mia Carney, who donated a painting to the fundraiser.

The original artworks were sold at the annual Art Benefit Party for €25 in a "blind lottery system" raising more than €900 for the Clancy Festival's popular trail of art exhibitions and installations by local artists. In keeping with the art sale's theme "In the Round", all the art pieces on sale were created were circular in shape.

Local singer/songwriter Neill Bourke performed at the event and refreshments were laid on for the visiting art buyers and artists.

Una Fahy of the Tudor Artisan Hub said it was a fantastic night and she thanked all the artists who donated artwork for the event.

"We wish to specially thank Elizabeth Bartley for helping to co-ordinate the event and the team of new artists, who helped out on the night. And thank you to all those who came along and supported the cause and enjoyed a lovely evening of art, music and tasty refreshments.
