Portumna Library Launch

Portumna Library
As part of the '2017 East Galway Library Art Trail', Bernard Dooley launches his show on the 3rd of May at 7pm.
Locally based artists are involved in the pioneering East Galway Art Trail, an innovative idea that is concerned with art awareness and library awareness, which has been taking place around the area at half a dozen different library locations.
Its objective is to bring art and artist into the community by using the space available in rural libraries.
These artists are working and living within local communities; by bringing both the artist and the libraries together, small communities can benefit from the enjoyment of art and engage with their library’s facilities.
All welcome
