SHED – BRIDGE STREET STUDIOS

Dundalk’s Bridge Street Studios mount a visual art exhibition exploring the meanings of “shed”. Working in response to the word “shed”, the artists and makers have produced an array of paintings, sculpture, prints, ceramics, textiles and mixed media for exhibition.

Bridge Street Studios is a longstanding working collective of nine professional artists and makers based in Dundalk, Co Louth.

FACES DON’T BOX ME IN

‘Don’t Box Me In Ltd’ is a project based in the Tommy Makem Arts and Community Centre Keady, where young people with and without disabilities come together to express their feelings. They learn to care for and understand one another and develop social skills, confidence and resilience. To facilitate equality, communication, and participation, all activities are presented using a combination of artistic mediums including music, drama, art, dance and storytelling. During the Winter of 2023-2024 the young people examined their own and each other’s feelings and emotions. These are depicted in some very creative art pieces in this group exhibition.

“Through Art we can all express ourselves and communicate the emotions we face each day, even those of us who cannot communicate verbally.” (Young Person)
