Paint the Feeling!

Art exhibitions will be held all over Ireland in June as part of the cultural programme of the 2003 Special Olympics World Summer Games. These exhibitions will be held all round the island of Ireland and will consist of art from participating international delegations together with art from local Host Town communities. Everyone is encouraged to get involved, particularly individuals and groups with a learning disability. The theme of the exhibition is Share the Feeling!

The exhibition is a great opportunity for us to showcase and raise awareness of the many talents and abilities of people in our local community. It’s an opportunity to involve individuals other than athletes in the Games- especially people with a learning disability who might not participate in sport or athletes who haven’t yet made it to the games in their chosen sport.

Castlebar’s Art Exhibition will be held in the Library from the 6th-29th June. Ivor Hamrock in the library is accepting artwork up until the 30th April so come on- get painting!

For further information please contact Carmel Dooley on 087-2349903
