Balbriggan Art Group Create a Mural of the Four Seasons in Millfield Shopping Centre

July 11, 2012 0

As part of the Balbriggan Summerfest 2012 four local artists – Zeus Cooney, Vincent Guildea, Emma Grant and Enda O’Connor, took the challenge to paint the four seasons on a large 30 foot by 8 foot canvas in aid of the Balbriggan Cancer Support Group.

The project was first discussed in the winter of 2011 at the Balbriggan Art Classes in the library. Zeus suggested to the group that they should paint a mural during the Balbriggan Summerfest and Vincent suggested they do this to raise funds for the Balbriggan Cancer Support Group.

On the day Enda, Emma, Vincent and Zeus made up the frame, put the canvas together and got to work. Their work of art quickly materialised in front of the passing shoppers with many people taking time to watch the artists at work. Easels were set up for the younger members to try their hands at creating their own masterpieces. The mural can still be seen in Millfield Shopping Centre and the group are hoping to auction the piece for the Balbriggan Cancer Support Group.

Enda, Emma, Vincent and Zeus would to thank the people of Balbriggan for all their support over the years especially Colm at the library for his help and Asumpta Hickey who always encouraged and supported the Balbriggan Art Group…
