Art House Meath

Wednesday, September 2, 2015

If this doesn’t brighten your day then I don’t know what will! These beautiful paintings are made by artists with disabilities who are part of ARTHOUSE Meath, an arts program for residents of Meath Epilepsy Trust and others from the community with similar disabilities. The works here are made by Sarah January, Helen Hankins, Stephen Thompson, Molly Parks, Ian Eldridge and others.

“ARTHOUSE Meath showcases the talents and skills of adults living with severe epilepsy, learning and physical difficulties. Professional art instructors offer guidance to ARTHOUSE Meath artists helping each person create images for designs and art works for exhibition and sale. All contributions are valued and everyone is involved. The artists offer something new with a refreshing perspective.”
