It’s coming to that time of the year again and Solas Gallery in Ballinamore is pleased to announce the launch of its Annual Christmas Group Exhibition this Friday, November 23.

A bit earlier this year to allow one more time to come and browse and enjoy the varied work that will be available. The exhibition has work by 25 artists and has more than 60 pictures on display. The work is very varied in style, content and media, ranging from oil, acrylic and water colour paintings to drawings, photographs and sculptures. Subject matter is far-flung, landscapes in all seasons, animals, more contemporary work, all in a variety of sizes and prices to suit most tastes.

The exhibition will be opened on Friday at 7.30pm by Enda Stenson, Cathaoirleach of Leitrim County Council. Solas Gallery is delighted to welcome Enda back to open this exhibition, and that he can find time in his busy schedule this year. The exhibition will be open until early January 2013 and please note that winter opening hours are 10-6, Tuesday to Saturday.

The Junior Art Exhbition will be held earlier next year, January 12-22 due to a very full schedule for 2013, which means work needs to be handed in earlier, between December 11 and 21 at the gallery. All work on A4 only, so time to start thinking about it, whether as an individual or a school entry. Full details will be in local paper and on our website and facebook.
