Nenagh Arts Centre host ‘Irish Tea Party’ exhibition

Irish Tea Party Poster
On June 4th Nenagh Arts Centre (E45 NX26) launched an exhibition of work from a group of artists tutored by Melissa Ryan and supported by Tipperary Community Education. The exhibition titled ‘Irish Tea Party’ will showcase the artists’ unique works relating to the country’s favourite beverage – Tea! The works have been created using mixed mediums on real Irish teabags and embroidered scenes which are displayed inside China teacups.  

The artists were inspired by ‘Purple Robe and Anemones’ (pictured below) painted by Henri Matisse and have collectively created an upcycled linen backdrop for the exhibition based on this painting. In addition to this backdrop the acrylic students have created a painting of their own to tie in with the theme of the ‘Irish Tea Party’.  

This event is free for everyone to attend. The exhibition will be open until 5pm on the 31st of July. This unique artistic showcase of the Irish ritual of tea drinking is one not to be missed.
