Cultúrlann Sweeney presents “Living on the Wild Side’’ by visual artist Gene Clohessy. Gene Clohessy is a visual artist from Limerick now living in Doonbeg, Co Clare for the last ten years. She has always had an interest and a flair for fine art and crafts and in 2018 set up her own studio called ‘’ Doonbeg Creative Arts Studio’’ to which she received a great positive response.
From her studio she runs workshops both for groups and on a one to one basis. Her skills are broad and she works in a variety of fine art and craft mediums, including needle felting, photography, card making, jewellery and more recently painting! She is continually renewing her practice and the forms that she uses to express her ideas. ‘’Living Life on the Wild Side’’ is her first solo exhibition and in this show she presents colourful, fun and exhuberent art works. The show runs from the 5th – 30th of August and is open to all members of the community.
