is now well established and grows in popularity
It is an unparalleled collection of local art
showcasing the work of established artists and also
offering emerging artists the opportunity to bring
their works to a public gallery.
This annual exhibition is held in aid of maintaining
a vibrant resource centre at the heart of our
community and to facilitate the ongoing development
of the Colgan Hall. It is an opportunity for the
community to showcase how these facilities have
developed over the years.
The exhibition is open to all who would like to call
in and experience this wonderful tranquil setting
and to view paintings from a wealth of local talent
in the area. On behalf of the Colgan Hall committee,
Chairperson Marian Hennigan announced that “we are
privileged to have this opportunity to present such
a diverse, rich and extensive range of exhibits and
would invite you all to share in this experience”.
