ONLINE: Visual Artists' Café - Show and Tell

This Visual Artists' Café will put our Co. Sligo and Co. Mayo based members in the spotlight in a 'Show and tell' format.

Featured will be 6 artists giving 6 different snapshots of the Sligo/Mayo based Visual Artist in 2020 and beyond; work, motivations, challenges and acclimation. What we experienced. What we learned.

We hope you can join us from your home or studio. Anyone who has attended one of our Visual Artist Cafés around the country in the past will know that the events are informal and all centred around creating a space to share information. Our Show and Tell Café will be no different – we will have six artists sharing their work and experience with you and a chance for you to ask them questions about their practice.

Please do join us, with everything that’s going on this will be a chance for us to connect with you and find out how you are getting on and what your needs are.

This Visual Artists Café online will feature:
