A new exhibition, ‘Le Chéile’, (English:-Together) will open on Thursday 3rd February at 7 p.m. in the Source Gallery, Thurles, Co Tipperary.

The Exhibition, presented by Europe Direct in Thurles Library, is a group exhibition of visual art by students in North Tipperary VEC’s education centres.

Held as part of this year’s Adult Learners’ Festival, Ann Marie Brophy, from Europe Direct, stated:

This annual festival is a wonderful opportunity to focus on the work being done by adult learners and their tutors in our community. The EU is a supporter of life long education and we at Europe Direct, in Thurles Library, are very proud to be associated with this forthcoming exhibition.

Elaine Hurley, Artist, and Art Tutor in Thurles Education Centre, has expressed the importance of creating a platform for emerging artists to showcase their talent. Elaine stated:

I would like to thank Europe Direct for giving our students this unique opportunity to exhibit in such a space. It is a great opportunity for them to share their creative talents within the wider community and for students from each centre, young and old, to share a common link.

For this exhibition, students of all ages and backgrounds have come together to showcase their wide range of technical skills, concepts and imaginative expressions. The exhibition will include; paintings, collage, drawings, photography and craft.

The exhibition, which has received funding from the European Commission, will run until the 24th February and is an event not to be missed.
