Art-appArt Annual QQi Exhibition

The Courthouse Gallery & Studios is delighted to partner with Ennistymon School of Art to do an adapted annual QQI exhibition online of their exhibition Art-appArt online on April 29th, 2021.

As the physical gallery remains closed, we hope you enjoy this alternative online exhibition and video presentation. The work combines sculpture, mixed media, painting, ceramics, and drawing. Ennistymon School of Art is a QQI cert awarded PLC course for students who would like to improve their artistic skills from beginners to advanced.


In the autumn of 2020 fifteen students gathered at the Ennistymon School of Art. Their ages ranged over five decades and their ethnic origins included at least five countries. Despite the ever-increasing restrictions of the COVID-19 Lockdown they continued to meet, actually or virtually, for nine months, and guided by their Tutors they refined old skills and discovered new ones, making art together, and then making art apart. They reflected and focussed on many different themes, using many different media, exploring their own inner truths, their different environments, and passions.


The students say that


“Lockdown meant that this year we cannot mount the usual Student’s Exhibition in the Courthouse Gallery, Ennistymon, County Clare, and so with the support of the Gallery and our tutors we have produced the video, ArtappArt, available to view on YouTube, in episodes over the next couple of weeks, starting on Thursday 29th April.  Access details on Instagram and Facebook: ennistymonartschool. We hope you will visit and enjoy!”
