Clifden Arts Festival 2023 Visual Arts Programme

By August 14, 2023September 7th, 2023No Comments

The visual arts have been an important component of the Clifden Arts Festival since its inception. Connemara has a magnetic effect on artists of all genres but particularly visual artists. Being immersed in the wild beauty of this place has inspired visual artists for centuries. This year we hope to inspire you with The Arts Trail, featured in many windows around the town featuring the work of over 30 artists connected to Connemara, then, we will have our Studio Trail Bus Tour immersing you in the Connemara Art Experience. We also have over 20 solo and group exhibitions at various venues around the area.
