TryART Exhibition in Tuam Library

A year’s work by Traveller men was exhibited in Tuam Library recently. The exhibition displayed work incorporating both visual and traditional crafts.
The group of men had been taking part in Tuam Traveller Men’s project, which is a Back to Education Initiative run by Co. Galway Vocational Education Committee.
TryART showcases five different introductory modules; Drawing, Painting, Woodcraft, Woodcarving and the building of a traditional
traveler wagon, in which fifteen men took part in.
Our photos illustrate some of the art works exhibited and the various stages involved in the building of the wagon.
