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.

Third Sheep Flock Event

In Sheep Flock on April 11, 2013 at 14:14

The first of these ‘Sheep Flock’ events was held in 2011, as an accompaniment to the annual Trail Walking Festival in Tinahely. After two years of successful grazing, the sheep flock is back, and better than before. Each artist, starting from a uniform steel template, has worked through the Winter to create their own individual take on Wicklow’s familiar woolly friends. They comprise of approximately two dozen 2 and 3 Dimensional metal sheep (almost one meter in length and more than half a meter tall, with some smaller lambs), each of which will be customized by individual artists in a variety of styles and materials. Each sheep will have an ear tag identifying its designer, and the flock will make a striking visual display throughout the village. For the rest of the summer, the eye catching sheep and their lambs will be situated out and about in Tinahely in unexpected locations around town, to be enjoyed by residents and visitors sampling our wonderful location and outdoor pursuits. The sheep flock will be on display around the village this year up until
Culture Night in September, which will provide a fitting platform and finale for our 2013 Sheep Flock.

Sheep Flock Launch

In Sheep Flock on April 24, 2011 at 14:22

You are invited to the launch of our inaugural public art event:

THE TINAHELY SHEEP FLOCK

marking the beginning of the 2011 Tinahely Trailwalking Festival
at 6.30 p.m. on FRIDAY, APRIL 29th at the MARKET SQUARE, TINAHELY
and then at the Courthouse Arts Centre

A curious flock of sheep and lambs, created by members of TAG, will be “grazing” around Tinahely for the summer: each artist, starting from a uniform steel template, has worked through the winter to create their own individual animal. It is hoped this will become an annual event and our arty sheep will multiply every spring. TAG is a collective of artists and craftspeople, all living and working in the Tinahely area. Members and their work represent a diverse range of disciplines and media, including painting and drawing, photography, sculpture, textiles and ceramics, glassware and metalwork.
