The Women of Open Circle Community Arts were delighted to present this work ‘Weight of Beauty’ recently at the Open Circle House for the AKA Alternative Kilkenny Arts. The work resulted from their engagement with the Open Circle Arts project and local artists, Julie Cusack, Julie Morehouse, Satruio Alonso and Caroline Schofield. The energy, open mindedness and creativity of the women is very evident in this varied body of work which includes drawings and collage, a new publication of ink drawings and textile work.
The Opening Launch on Friday 11th August was a huge success, and the response to the work for the duration of the exhibition was very positive. Thank you to all who came to the exhibition for their comments and support, it is much appreciated by all involved, and of course a big thank you to Julie, Julie, Saturio and Caroline, the artists who facilitated the workshops with the woman.
