Roscommon Arts Office in partnership with Create

Launch: February 9, 2010

This publication produced by Roscommon Arts office in partnership with Create documents both the experience and the art produced during the 2009 Roscommon arts office art@work residency.

The launch of the Art@Work publication is on Tues Feb 9 at 3 pm at King House, Boyle, Co. Roscommon.

Art@Work is a residential programme organised by Roscommon County Council Arts Office where artists, financed by Roscommon County Arts Office and the Arts Council of Ireland, spend three weeks in a company in County Roscommon making artwork motivated by the environment, staff, materials and working practices of the company.

The programme was initiated to bring artists and the making of art closer to the public but holds equal benefits for artists, management and staff.

Edited by Philip Delamere Roscommon arts officer and Sarah Tuck of Create, it also includes an introductory essay by artist Jessica Foley, who writes of the Residency Programme- “…by allowing artists and workers from diverse areas and backgrounds to converse, to exchange experiences, share knowledge and generate fresh perspectives on the world of work and the work of art..mutual learning and meaning can be created to the benefit and enhancement of all involved, individuals and communities alike.”

Artists taking part: Chris Banahan in Nurture’s Best crèche; Martina Cleary in Cruachan Ai; Sinead Conlon at Roscommon Library; Veronica Forsgren, Feelystone; Ruth Lyons at Lough Key Forest Park; Elaine Reynolds & Amy King in Molloy’s Bakery; Cathal Roche at the Carrick Cineplex.
