We have been delighted with the response to our exhibition which opened 4 July with the new season of exhibitions at VISUAL Carlow.
Celebrating our ten years of working together, The Possibilities of Place exhibition has been an exciting means to share our work, and in an incredible venue.
Below are some photos from the opening and if you missed it, you can listen again to the review on RTE Arena by Cristin Leach in conversation with Sean Rocks.
