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.
Remco de Fouw, Michelle Byrne, Cathy Fitzgerald, Anthony Lyttle, Annabel Konig, Gwen Wilkinson, Martin Lyttle, Jules Michael and Rachel Joynt will transform one of Borris’s most charming and historic townhouses into a gallery for a single weekend.
