Kilkenny Design Centre hosts an art exhibition with a difference this autumn. Warm
textures, bright colours and delicious imagery combine to create Bright Harvest – a witty
celebration of nature and food in Kilkenny. Local artists have created pieces especially for
this show which launches on Thursday, 25th October at 11am in the upstairs restaurant, and
will run for one month.
Mary Morahan from Mooncoin has been needle felting for the last two years, since she
learned from Helena, a worker with the Camphill Community. She creates warm-hearted
scenes of nature and everyday life. “The big felted pieces take up to six weeks and small
ones can go quickly. I love it.”
Facilitated by Julia Cooke and Cathy Dineen, The Umbrella Group is made up of several
different art groups from the Kilkenny Mental Health Services. The artists recycle fabrics
and materials that have been abandoned and discarded, making them into something new
through the processes of dying, cutting and crochet.
All profits from the exhibition will go directly to the artists and the Mother of Fair Love
