Feel Ukraine - Art Exhibition

Cootehill Library is host to an exhibition of artworks by adults and children from Ukraine who are now living in Cootehill. Working with artist Olivia Boyle as part of a project funded by Cavan County Local Development, the group used paint and mixed media to process the experience of displacement while adapting to the traditions and lifestyle of their host country and explored common symbolism, and natural and cultural aspects of both nationalities. All welcome to the exhibition opening on Thursday 8 December at 7.00pm.
