From Tuesday 8th December to Thursday 24th December 2009


The Christmas 'Meitheal' Exhibition takes place bi-annually in Signal Arts Centre. It features work by Signal artists past and present. The exhibition's title refers to the traditional practice and celebration of community endeavour, a concept which is surely most relevent in these straitened times!


In this year's 'Meitheal' the Gallery will be full to the brim with good quality reasonably priced art work, a treasure trove of unique handmade gifts and an array of delicious festive fare. An interesting and entertaining programme of events will be happening, including an evening of music with Mia Parsons, poetry readings, life drawing and painting sessions, artistís talks, and a Christmas Quiz night.


The Meitheal will be catering for younger visitors too, who can visit Arty Crafty Santy in his workshop! Art classes and craft workshops in jewellery, textiles, print, papermaking, origami, etc., can be arranged for families and small parties. So leave your shopping blues at home this Christmas and join us to celebrate our creative endeavours!

The exhibition will be launched with mulled wine, mince pies and other culinary treats on Tuesday 8th December from 5pm-8.30pm, and run daily (except Mondays) until 24th December.


Opening Reception: Tuesday 8th December 5-8:30pm
