The Peoples Art Exhibition

The Peoples Art Exhibition normally held in St. Andrews Parish Centre in Lucan and which was planned for October 2008, will not be going ahead.

We are disappointed that this exhibition has been cancelled, it was a really great weekend.

We are now in a position that we have some works already in process and nowhere to exhibit...... so watch this space.

As soon as we have another venue organized we'll make an announcement.

Our Daisies

A few years ago we had an exhibition in the library in Leixlip, Co. Kildare.

The exhibition space there is fantastic, the lighting is amazing and the way in which the pictures are hung is great.

We exhibited some new pieces along with some older paintings which were as Marie would put it "kicked around under the bed", when we arrived to lay out and position the paintings we noted that as some stage we had all painted Daisies.

They are all of the same subject and yet they are different and are distinctive in their own way.

So here are our "Daisies".

BrushworX Art Group

This art group comprises of three women artists, who have been both painting and exhibiting together since 2003. They work in all mediums, but each has their favourite.
The style also varies, depending on the influences in each of their lives at any particular time. From favourite landscapes and places they have visited, through to the vibrant colours in nature, capturing a moment in time, during a stroll on a beach or even an everyday event like children playing.
The artists are : Niamh Pedreschi, Marie Morrow and Shirley Hackett.

This is Shirley's "Dublin City by night"

This is Marie's "Rope"

This is Niamh's "Irish Country Cottage"

This is just a sample of our work.
