Cúram Group Exhibition

CĂșram is a four person exhibition by artists Daniel Chester, Cherry Dowling, Amy McGovern and Stephen Rennicks as part of the Arts + Health Programme 2019 delivered by Sligo County Council Arts Service. Curated by Catherine Fanning. Funded by Sligo County Council, HSE West and the Arts Council of Ireland

Four artists based in the environs of County Sligo have artistic encounters within the realm of health care for older people. They are invited to make work responding to that experience.  Two of them work with groups in rural health centres, two of them with individuals.  All have been touched by echoes of the past within their encounters.  Carrying those echoes into the present through visual narrative is the gift of this exhibition.  There is a sense of discovery common to each, something of the treasure trove amidst the vestiges.

Exhibition runs 9th - 29th October 2019 at the Hyde Bridge Gallery, Sligo
