Bailieborough Creative Hub: Bailieborough Creative Hub presents their annual exhibition in Bailieborough Library, ‘Page 10…Line 5…’

Launching at 7pm on Culture Night, Friday September 23rd  2022 and everyone is welcome.

The inspiration for this year’s exhibition has been drawn from books and more specifically page 10, line 5 from the artists selected book.

The artwork may reflect the theme of the book or just one word from the line, which has then been interpreted in the artist’s own creative and unique style.

The final result is a diverse exhibition.

Words offer an interesting starting point to create a piece of art so find page 10, line 5 in your favourite book and maybe you will be inspired to create your own piece of art.
