Fermanagh & Omagh District Council welcome the Island Artists a local art group from Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh who are due to exhibit at The Higher Bridges Gallery in The Clinton Centre from the 3 March - 1 April 2017.
The Island Artists are group of amateur artists who just love to paint and draw in a variety of media, styles and subject matter. The original group, led by Noel Mc Neill, got together at the turn of the century and although the name of the group has changed the enthusiasm has not waned.
The Island Artists meet twice weekly. Meetings last two hours. Each artist works in their preferred media and style. Lots of advice, hints and encouragement from others is greatly appreciated and the end results can be viewed in local venues throughout the year.
Excursions to visit exhibitions are frequently organised whether they are held locally or further afield. Belfast, Dublin, Sligo and Donegal are popular destinations. An annual painting holiday provides a new environment and stimulation. On these outings the artists have been motivated to paint en plein air and their own photographs of Irish locations provide subject matter.
As the need arises or as requested by someone, we invite a tutor to deliver a short course on an agreed topic. This is an incentive to try something new - a new technique, a different subject matter or to improve a technique.
The Island Artists local art exhibition opens at The Higher Bridges Gallery in the Clinton Centre on Friday 3 March at 7pm. Exhibition continues through to 1 April 2017 the exhibition is free to attend & everyone is welcome.
