9 Stones Artists Opening (the night before the Borris Festival of Writing and Ideas begins)
9 Stones Artists Opening 13 June  at 6pm – ALL WELCOME!  (the night before the Borris Festival of Writing and Ideas begins)

Uniting for our fifth group show,  the 9 Stones Artists will present an exciting exhibition of recent and site-specific works in Borris Village for the duration of the Borris House Festival of Writing and Ideas, as part of the 2014 Carlow Arts Festival.

A common thread to the 9 Stones Artists group is that we respond to the area and reflect new meanings and experiences of South Carlow to audiences; in the various media we choose, the themes we engage with or the practices and processes we undertake.

In creative ways, the 9 Stone Artists look to define and enrich understandings of the area; by examining its unique past, present and future aspirations; the geological, aesthetic, and ecological rhythms of the area and how these thread through local South Carlow life.

Some of the 9 Stone Artists are concerned with art-making, some with extended or site-specific studies of the area, others again work across non-art disciplines or connect and participate with non art-groups; all create works that transmit new understandings of this special area of County Carlow, still little known outside the county.

Our opening is on the evening before the Borris House Festival, Fri 13th June at 6pm and runs alongside the  Borris Festival of Writing and Ideas weekend event until Sun 15 June.

Please feel free to share this exhibition notice.

  1. Reblogged this on resiliencies: stories of transformation from a small Irish forest and commented:
    I’m very much looking forward to showing a couple of my experimental filmworks along with fellow South Carlow 9 Stones Artists. Although this is our 5th group exhibition for the first time our group is showing in our closest village, Borris and coinciding with the 2014 Borris Festival of Writing and Ideas. Info below and please feel free to share.

    Just wanted to support and re-blog this. Several of the most interesting and accomplished artist working in Ireland today, exhibiting together, for one weekend only, in a beautiful little historic house in the beautiful little heritage village of Boris, Co Carlow. During the same weekend, the Boris festival of Writing and ideas is running, in the grounds of Boris House, ancestral home of the mcMurrough-Kavanagh family., so there’s a nice combination there for anyone free this weekend. congratulations and best wishes to all the artist involved.
