Well, I’m now into my final week here at Cow House Studios and it has turned into a really busy period of time. On Thursday I had the day at Wexford Arts Centre and Art College, which was great: thank you once again to everyone at both of those venues who were so welcoming. And of course yesterday was the Cow House Open Studio which was another great event, bringing in lots of people from across the east of Ireland, I know from talking to them that several came down from Dublin, up from Waterford and we even had someone come all the way from Belfast in the North. Amongst them it was great to meet up and talk with Peter Prendergast, Director/Curator at Monster Truck Gallery Dublin; http://monstertruck.ie/blog/?page_id=2 , where we will be exhibiting much of the new work inspired by this residency in 2012: he is very excited by the prospect of this as are we all at Cow House. So today it is a little bit of a chance to get my breath back, because we haven’t finished yet, tomorrow we have a group of student coming over from Gorey School of Art.

But as you can see by the invitation at the top of todays post, it isn’t a quiet day for everyone, my good friend and co-residencee here at Cow House, Sabina MacMahon,  set off early this morning to start the installation of her solo show at Droichead Arts Centre, “Longevity, if not immorality”. From my contact with Sabina’s work this should prove to be a fascinating show and I would advise anyone who finds themselves in the area to call by for an eye-opening experience. Good luck Sabina.
