On Culture Night, Friday 17th September, the Arts Department of Wexford County Council and Wexford Arts Centre are pleased to present Whatever, the bi-annual Arts Ability initiative in CUMAS, New Ross.
Thomas Martin is a poet, a painter, a writer and an illustrator, who lives in Co. Wexford. He is a foundin member of the Arts Ability group at Cumas New Ross.
Marie Holohan is a founding member of the Arts Ability Studio group at CUMAS. A meticulous painter, Marie’s work features surreal patterns and vibrant colours to create vivid, detailed paintings which build highly imaginative and dreamlike landscapes.
The title of this exhibition was prompted by artist Andrew Murphy’s concept of the bandaged sky and the rainbow, referenced in the writing of another participant in the exhibition – the writer/artist John D. Yates.
True Colours is a significant exhibition for the Arts Ability artists as it is their first exhibition outside of the southeast of Ireland.
