Congratulations to Kitty whose beautiful painting of Glenary Stream was sold last week from the South Tipp Art Group, (STAG’s) Exhibition at the Arts Centre in Nelson Street, Clonmel. The painting was bought by a Clonmel person who has been living in Cork for the past 40 years. This very popular exhibition,in the Art Gallery downstairs and the Studio upstairs is getting very favourable comments. Attendance is way up also, which the Arts Centre is very pleased with. There is a fun competition running in conjunction with the exhibition for the public to pick their three favourite artworks in the exhibition and these will be collated at the closing of the exhibition at the end of August and an announcement will be made.
STAG members can also vote but not for their own artworks. The Arts Centre in Nelson Street, opposite the Court House is open from Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 5pm including lunchtime and on Saturday from 12 noon to 4pm. Admission is free.
