Clare County Arts Office has announced an exhibition in Clare Museum that explores the theme of church architecture and the historical role of the church acting as “patron” to artists and craftsmen and women throughout the ages.

John McCormack uses sketching as a form in which to present his ideas in the exhibition, which is entitled ‘When Craftsmen Upped Their Game’. “My interest in church architecture has been a gradual process, initiated more by luck then judgement,” said the local artist.

Mr. McCormack continued, “Sketching in a busy spot can be impractical, often attracting unwanted attention. A church can provide shelter, seating and peace, I soon realised it can supply inspiration.”

John has studied visual art throughout his life and has exhibited in Stephens Green, Dublin and in the Clare Museum and Ennistymon.

‘When Craftsmen Upped Their Game’ is a free event and runs for two weeks from June 18th to 30th art Clare Museum.
