Well unfortunately Saturday was very wet, but it didn’t dampen the spirits of some TAG members who came along outside the CourtHouse Arts Centre and exhibited their work. We had a few visitors, but really it was a day for staying indoors !!
However Sunday dawned bright, if a little windy and once more the troops gathered ! This time the rain mostly kept away. We had some visitors through the day and then at the time of the prizegiving we had more people arrive. Paintings were sold.
It was a nice way for TAG to take part in the community and we would like to thank the Courthouse for their hospitality and support.
The prizewinners on the day were :1ST Prize Jessica Murphy Age 7 TINAHELY N.S.

We had a great response to our art competition for local schools. There were over 250 entries. The schools who participated were : Tinahely NS. Kilcommon, Crossbridge and Coolafancy. The work is colourful and energetic. Thanks to the Courthouse for opening on Monday and helping us hang the exhibition. Maggie said they never had as many paintings on show. So be sure to get down and see it from Thursday 31st July to Sat 2nd of August. The prize giving will be on Sunday 3rd of August at 4.00. If you come to see it on Sat or Sun don’t forget to look at TAG members art outside the courthouse. Some of the members will be painting.
