2019 AGM Monday 9th September To be held in The Coimín Centre Blessington. Notification will follow nearer the date by post.
As you may be aware, Blessington Tourist Office has moved location from behind the Credit Union to the shop unit beside Dunnes stores where we held our Christmas pop up shop.
Cruthú has been invited to exhibit work in the office as a showcase for the group and for sale. The committee are currently making plans to manage a rotating display of members work. All members can apply to exhibit. When details are worked out, we will be back in touch. In the meantime, member Judy Lawler will exhibit a piece on a temporary basis to hold the space and at the Tourist Office request to start the project asap.
We have decided to hold our Annual Artfest on Sunday 28th July. This coincides with the RSHI Annual Garden Event. This will guarantee a good footfall and takes away the necessity of any big promotion on our part. Most premises members are currently up to quota with their art allotment – or have already been invited to submit more. If non premises members would like to drop in a few pieces for the Artfest, please bring them along before Sunday 28th labelled etc. Text Sally or Judy Lawler to let them know they are there,
Weather permitting, we will have a couple of outdoor gazebos for children’s art tables. We will also be joined by Erika Tyner and Anne Cullen who will give a preview of their 2020 ‘Discovering Wicklow’ Art project which will be hosted in Cruthú next Spring as part of a Wicklow wide tour. Any member who would like to attend and give a demonstration of their work would be very welcome. We are also looking for offers of a couple hours rota help on the day to be available to represent Cruthú and talk to visitors. Please get in touch with committee by text / WhatsApp / or email.
