STRIKING WORKS of art and poetry will adorn the walls of Wexford County Council until May 19th, thanks to works created by 40 accomplished local artists and writers and curated by invited artist Dominic Thorpe.

‘Crocodile Sky’, as launched recently, features vibrant colourful paintings, drawings and sculptural works created by participants of the Arts Ability programme facilitated by the Arts Department of Wexford County Council in conjunction with the Arts Council, HSE Disability and Mental Health Services and partner venues.

Dealing with subject matters ranging from the visual to the ritualistic and the dreamlike to the political, the captivating works leave an impression on the viewer and will command many a second visit over the course of the coming weeks.

Words creatively printed on the large glass panels throughout the County Council building explore matters both observational and deeply personal and offer spectators new opportunities to engage with poetry.

The artists, along with family members, friends, supporters and interested onlookers heard from Wexford County Council Cathaoirleach, Paddy Kavanagh and Arts Officer, Sineád Burns, at the exhibition’s recent launch.

Sineád Reilly, Head of Local Arts and Arts Participation with The Arts Council, was the guest speaker in attendance.
