The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has marked our reopening with a visit to current ‘Close to Home’ exhibition by acclaimed artist Maurice Orr.
Inspired by the poetry of Seamus Heaney, the exhibition is an atmospheric journey through the enchanted local rural landscape around Lough Neagh and Bellaghy which the poet loved so dearly.
Speaking after his visit, Councillor Richard Holmes said: “Our Arts Centres are wonderful assets for our communities and visitors, and I was pleased to have this opportunity to visit in person and view the beautiful pieces on display.
“I know staff have worked tirelessly to offer inspirational creative experiences despite the challenges of recent months and it is a tribute to their dedication that they are welcoming visitors back once again and hosting exhibitions of this calibre.
“Our Arts Service team have planned an extensive summer workshops programme for both adults and young people and I would highly recommend that you visit your local arts centre to explore all they have to offer.”
Flowerfield Arts Centre and Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre in Limavady have secured the ‘Good to Go!’ UK-wide industry standard and consumer mark to reassure customers that it adheres to the best government and public health safety measures.
Close to Home continues until Saturday 24th July 2021. Galleries are open Wednesday and Thursday, 10am - 4pm and 7-9pm, Friday 10am-3pm and Saturday 10am-1pm.
