In March The Dock sent out an open call to young people in Leitrim and the surrounding region (Roscommon, Sligo, Longford and Cavan) to encourage them to celebrate and think about the beauty of their local areas. Inviting them to participate in a virtual exhibition titled, NATURE NURTURE.
The exhibition NATURE NURTURE is young peoples response to the importance of the natural world in all its forms and describes their relationship to it.
There were three age categories of 7-9, 10- 14 and 15-18 years, The exhibition was curated by artist David Smith and Laura Mahon Visual Arts & Education Manager at The Dock. This new project creates an exhibition space both, virtual and real for young artists to show their artwork in a highly regarded public gallery. At a later date, a select number of young people (Young Exhibitors) will showcase the original works at The Dock.
