The Three by Three art exhibition, which was launched some weeks ago in association with Junefest will host a “Meet the Artist” afternoon this Saturday, June 16.

Based in a unit beside Lifestyle Sports in the Courtyard Shopping Centre in Newbridge, the exhibition has attracted a lot of support and praise from the public since it opened.

It features the work of nine artists in total, three from Newbridge, three from the county of Kildare and three from the rest of Ireland.

They are Eleanor Swan, Brian O’Loughlin, Annette McCormack, Eamon Keenan, Meave Mulcahy, Margaret Becker, Padraig McCaul, Laurance O’Toole and Brock Butler.

“A lot of people have been coming in to see the work and the response has been very positive,” Brian O’Loughlin from Rathangan explained.

“There have been several sales of work for artists. There’s been a great reaction from the public.”

The “Meet the Artist” takes place next Saturday from 2 to 5pm.

There’s a sister event running in the nearby Henry St. gallery where Zita McGarry Kelly from Sallins, Grainne Dowling from Athgarvan and Mary Ronayne are exhibiting.
