Centenary book launch

I was invited to go to the launch of the book Centenary last night. It took place at the GPO in Dublin. Heather Humphreys T.D., Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht launched the new publication Centenary. Centenary was edited by Ronan McGreevy, Irish Times journalist and author.

What a brilliant book! Centenary is a state published book documenting the 2016 Centenary Programme. It features many articles, interviews and pictures from the various commemorations and events from around Ireland and the rest of the world – including me and my art work!

Screening of Silent Moves

I’m really looking forward seeing this…..

Silent Moves explores the real challenges faced by people with disabilities in our society: freedom to work, make friends, fall in love, marry, move freely in the world and make their own choices.
A film by internationally acclaimed visual artist Aideen Barry and artists of Western Care’s Ridgepool Training Centre, Scannán Technologies and presented by Ballina Arts Centre. For more information click here.

Recent Press – Western People

Thank you to the Western People newspaper for the lovely features on the Mayo Mental Health Association poster competition.

The Mayo Mental Health Association invited me along as special guest and prize giver at their 8th annual art competition. It was so positive and encouraging to see children express their thoughts on mental health through the form of art.
