Lat Tuesday the fifth and sixth years art students tool a trip into the  Luan gallery Athlone . The current exhibition  “Without the words”  is inspired by a line from Emily Dickinson’s well loved poem “Hope is a Thing with Feathers” .

The exhibition showcases the work of both established & emerging creative talents and is a testament to the vibrancy and recognised status of Irish illustration at home and in the international arena.  The current  exhibition in the Gallery  presents this imaginative and cutting edge art form to audiences and Art  lovers in the midlands.

The students also stopped to view and examine the beautiful wood carvings by Richard Clarke from Mullingar in Ballinahown on the way home
