The Arts Department of Wexford County Council in partnership with Wexford Arts Centre are delighted to present Bare Root, a group exhibition exploring rural and farmyard environments, and the points where nature and the man-made intersect. Situated in the County Buildings, Bare Root features the work of artists including Frank Abruzzese, Michael Canning, Els Dietvorst, Michael Fortune, Janet Mullarney, Rosie O’Gorman, Helen Robbins, Blaise Smith, Brigitta Varadi, Michael Wann and Katie Watchorn.

The term Bare Root refers to a technique of arboriculture whereby a plant is removed from soil in a dormant state, from which it can more rapidly acclimate to new soil conditions. Bare Root emphasises time, materiality, and the transference of traditions from one generation to the next within rural communities.

For further information on the exhibition please contact Catherine Bowe, Visual Arts Manager, Wexford Arts Centre, Cornmarket, Wexford on +353 (0)53 91 23764 or email
