‘The last number of weeks has been a wonderful experience for all who engaged with the process of making art. It has allowed us to open our minds and explore what art might mean in a completely new way. The experience has been both a challenging and an enjoyable adventure. We very much look forward to resuming our journey in August’. Liz Fenlon, for and on behalf of Cultúrbug.

‘Art finds her own perfection within, and not outside herself. She is not to be judged by any external standard of resemblance. She is a veil, rather than a mirror. She has flowers that no forests know of, birds that no woodland possess, she makes and unmakes many worlds, and can draw the moon from heaven with a scarlet thread.’
