Abbeylara-based artist Lar Maguire will this week host his first exhibition in sixteen years.
Larâ€™s last exhibition, which was held in Dublin, was a tremendous success. The title of the exhibition was â€˜A New Directionâ€™, which could also sum up Larâ€™s latest works.
â€œI have dabbled in all mediums with the exception of watercolours/pen and ink which will feature in this oneâ€ Lar explains.
Larâ€™s latest exhibition will reflect his own environment and â€œan â€˜artisticâ€™ reference to Abbeylara and part Granard coupled with other worksâ€.
Lar admits that after the long absence it is â€œrefreshingâ€ to return to art.
He also acknowledges the support and help of Granard Credit Union, particularly Marie Scanlon; Dunphyâ€™s Supervalu and Cllr Tommy Stokes.
Lar also extends a special thank you to his partner Angie Grogan â€œfor her time, encouragement, patience and understanding in bringing the event from an idea to fruition.â€
â€œArt has a way of bringing all aspects of a community togetherâ€ Lar explains, adding that to cement this fact, 20% of all sales will go to the Granard branch of St Vincent de Paul.
Larâ€™s exhibition will open this Friday, February 28 at 8pm in Granard Credit Union.
