Working Artists Roscommon are a long established collective of visual artists based in Roscommon. As part of Roscommon Arts Centre’s 8 DEGREE West programme that hinges on celebrating the legacy, and future, of visual arts in the county, this exhibition will present new works ranging from installation, mixed media painting, to sculpture and performance by all 6 founding members; Frances Crowe, Joseph Cuniffe, Honor Fitzgerald, Dympna Molloy, Noel Molloy and Anne Rigney.
This exhibition has been selected as the Percent for Art project to mark the opening of the new extension at Roscommon Arts Centre. The build project was funded by Roscommon Council Council and part-funded by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
