Im just in the door from having a little bit of a sneak preview of some of the work on show for this years FORM exhibition at Ballymaloe.
(from the Artistic Alliance press release)
The launch evening reception shall take place on the lawn at Ballymaloe House on Mid Summers Day – Tuesday 21st June and shall run from then until August 31st. The show is open daily from 9am to 9pm and admission is free. For 2016 the exhibition has attracted a superb list of artists from Ireland and overseas and encompasses the full range of sculptural disciplines. The line up includes John Coll, Jason Ellis, Redmond Herrity, Eileen McDonagh, Tim Morris, Elizabeth O’Kane, Patrick O’Reilly, Michael Quane, Martha Quinn, and Vivienne Roche to mention but a few. The artists themselves shall be in attendance for the launch night and thus offers a great opportunity to discuss their sculptures with them.
Refreshments shall be served on the front lawn at 6.30pm on Tuesday 21st June. There shall be an informal walk with the artists through the 90-piece exhibition. The event, which has gained great popularity over the years, is sure to attract a large audience again this year.
