As part of Culture Night, Bó Studios is delighted to open its doors to members of the public for one night only. Take a short stroll from An Táin Arts Centre, where Bó Studios houses 4 practicing artists, with dedicated space for each artist in an open plan setting, which offers its members the opportunity to collaborate, support and exchange skills, thereby growing their individual practice and in turn contributing to the visual arts scene in Dundalk. The purpose of the open studio is for members of the public to meet and view the artists work and learn about each artists practice.
Current members include:
DAVID CALLAN – MIXED MEDIA ARTIST David is a mixed media artist who works with found materials, sculpture and video and is influenced by dystopian concepts. His most recent commission was for Louth Culture Quest.
