Exhibition - "Let it Flow"
the last month Nuala Clarke (Irish) & Joseph Ostraff (American
visiting artist) lead a very exciting project making a collaborative
installation with eight schools from the North Mayo area.
The task for each student was to consider the importance of
the river & make a house whether it was their own or imaginary.
What the river means to them personally, what might be found
in and around it, and who/what might be reliant on it. Watching
the students at work we were moved by the excitement and insight
each student brought, and the joy they felt at seeing their
ideas become real art, reminded us all of why we love art
The Installation is open to the public on March 20th between 6
p.m. and 8 p.m., at The Ballinglen Gallery, Main Street, Ballycastle,
Co. Mayo. Everyone is welcome to come along and see the
beautiful work the children produced. Refreshments served.
