Locals Gather To Support Culture Night

Westmeath Culture Night 2013

Westmeath Culture Night 2013 took place on Friday 20th September. Once again, the Garden Gallery in Crowenstown provided the venue and a programme of art, performance and education.

Hazel Revington’s 2013 collection entitled “Bog Bodies” was unveiled and Noel French of the Trim Heritage Centre gave a fitting introduction. Emma Noonan was also on hand to talk about her latest project, “The Ornamented Butterfly”. Using combined techniques, Emma has created her own paper embroidered butterfly collection. Examples of her work, including an installation piece, were admired and discussed during the evening.

As usual the walls were adorned by works from a number of different artists and Mary McEvoy enjoyed a great reception for her performance of “Waiting” by Jennifer Johnson.
