SUNDAY 7th SEPTEMBER @ Cloonkeen, Newbridge, Ballinasloe, Co.Galway. 2pm
ARTFarm is an annual open submission opportunity extended to artists by 126 and Sheila Flanagan (generous owner of the beautiful house and grounds that is ARTFarm). On Sunday the 7th of September from 2.00pm the ARTFarm will be open to visitors. Visitors will be welcomed to the ARTFarm with a tour of the grounds by Sheila Flannigan and a informal presentation by Ramona Burke and board members of 126 about this unique residency and future plans for ARTFarm. Sheila and Ramona have generously offered to provide food and refreshments for visitors to the ARTFarm Open Day, so if you could please contact 126 to let us know you’ll be making the trip out it would be much appreciated.
Lifts can be arranged for those who need them, firstname.lastname@example.org.
ARTFarm is located in a rural and secluded setting in Cloonkeen, Newbridge, Ballinasloe, Co.Galway. It comprises a farmhouse with additional studio space of a large open barn and a shed/workshop space.
