Renzo Café hosts art exhibition by the students of award-winning Galway artists
The eclectic and wonderful annual student exhibition of new works by the students of Denise Hogan’s school of art is back again this year as part of the Galway Fringe Festival!
‘And They Flew VI’ is a celebration of the hard work and dedicated practise of art of the students of Denise Hogan and her colleague Gillian Christie and this year’s show is, as always, a delight to present. This wonderful carcophony of works (oils, acrylics and watercolours at affordable prices) will open to the public on Tuesday 3rd July next and will show until the 13th August in the elegant Renzo Café Gallery, Eyre Street (next door to Debenhams).
‘There is something for everyone in this exhibition’, says Denise. ‘All of our students have worked so hard during the year, it’s a joy to see such great results going on exhibit to the public.’
Denise runs a series of ten-week art classes in Roscam, Galway (near Galway Clinic) as well as Headford and Clonbur (Co. Galway) during the year as well as holding many one-day workshops in various media (glass-painting, oils, acrylics, mixed media and more…). Her next One Day Glasspainting workshop will take place on Saturday 18th August and due to its popularity it’s advisable to book in as early as possible. All materials, refreshments and home-cooked lunch are provided.
‘It’s very important for us as teachers that every artist is allowed and encouraged to express their own invidual style of painting, which in turn, creates a safe, creative and stimulating atmosphere of learning in all of our classes.’ says Denise.’
Both teachers and students wish to extend an hearty invitation to all to come along and view our latest works which is included in this year’s visual arts progamme of the Galway Fringe Festival. ‘And They Flew’ exhibitions have become an eagerly awaited annual event in the city amongst art lovers.
