Grass Roots; Bog Cottage, Saidhbhín Gibson, Carl Giffney, Mary O’Leary, Nollaig Molloy, Rory Mullen, Cliodhna Timoney, Katie Watchorn; Muine Bheag Arts, Carlow; 2021
I am co-founder of Muine Bheag Arts, an artist-run organisation based in Co. Carlow which hosts a programme of exhibitions, workshops and events in the public realm. Muine Bheag Arts presented the first public programme, Grass Roots, in 2021.
Grass Roots is situated in public spaces throughout Muine Bheag. The programme includes contributions from Bog Cottage, Saidhbhín Gibson, Carl Giffney, Mary O’Leary, Nollaig Molloy, Rory Mullen, Cliodhna Timoney and Katie Watchorn. The artists were invited to respond to Muine Bheag and the rural context as a space of artistic production. The works explore notions of the land, craft, industry, community and place.
