We are delighted to have Barry Finnegan, as our first artist-in-residence here at Creative Spark. This residency programme has been generously supported by Louth County Council as a means of supporting the development of visual artists in the region.
Barry (pictured in his studio below) has been busy developing vibrant murals around Dundalk in recent years, so it’s exciting to see him develop a new body of work to showcase at future exhibitions. He has been developing new screen-printed artwork in Creative Spark Print Studio and also plans to run a workshop in the community in the New Year.
We have five artist residencies planned over the course of the next year and look forward to having both Irish and international artists based in Creative Spark.
Images of Barry’s artwork are available on www.facebook.com/ThinkingCapDesign , his new page for murals, illustration and graphic design.
