Armagh artists hold exhibition in Waterfront

Paul King from the group said: “We were one of the few selected artists groups in Northern Ireland to be given this exhibition opportunity by the Waterfront.

“The Waterfront show is our fourth exhibition this year. We had an exhibition in the Armagh Market Place Theatre and Arts Centre in March, an exhibition in Millennium Court Arts Centre in June and an exhibition in Alwood’s gallery space in Lurgan in September.

“We also have an very impressive line up of shows for 2012.”
