‘BEYOND: Irish Outsider Art’ exhibition in the Copper House Gallery is in full swing and has already been receiving a lot of attention and praise.
The opening took place last Tuesday the 6th of October and will run until the 25th of October 2015. Matthew, Suzanne and Rachel went along to the opening of the show and got the chance to meet and chat with the curator Brent Pope and some of the other artists.
Mathhew and his creation.
Matthew’s piece ‘Transformation’ is hanging up just as you come into the gallery. He was thrilled with how it was placed and hung.
“I had an amazing time on Tuesday. Everyone really liked my work. The gallery is beautiful and I am proud to be part of this exhibition.” – Matthew Colgan
