Care e r: Paintings by Jude at Artlink, Fort Dunree form 2nd - 24th March 2019. Patrick Clafferty - the artist known as “Jude” - has been invited by Artlink to showcase a collection of his work at the Saldanha Suite, Fort Dunree, this March.
Jude has entitled the exhibition Care e r, and selected work produced during the past three years. The title of the exhibition ironically reflects on the fact that, for the past few years, he has been thrust into the emotionally challenging role of full-time carer for his two ageing parents.
The opening reception is Saturday 2nd March, 2 - 4 pm. The exhibition runs until 24th March, open daily 10.30 - 4.30pm.
