News - 41st Annual Exhibition- Opening May 21st 2019

Last Updated: 07 May 2019

On Tuesday, 21st of May, the Athy Art Group will hold the opening of its 41st Annual Art Exhibition in the GAA Hall, Dublin Road at 8 pm. Honoured to have Suzanne MacDougald officially open the exhibition, all are welcome to what promises to be a wonderful night.

The Athy Art Group started after the success of an art competition and exhibition organised by members of the youth group, Aontas Ogra, in 1970. The exhibition was such as success that, instead of only holding an exhibition every year, the Athy Art Group was formed to organise exhibitions, classes, and workshops throughout the year.

Still going strong after 41 years, the art group is somewhat unique in that they give all their members an equal opportunity to exhibit, regardless of whether they are a beginner amateur artist or a seasoned professional artist.
