in Home/News by

THE Inis Artists group have been in existence for more than 20 years and are noted for their extensive touring art exhibitions. 

They hold up to 14 different exhibitions all over the country in any given year but almost all of their exhibition venues are closed due to Covid 19.

All is not lost however as the Inis Artists have created a virtual art exhibition, calling it their Spring Lockdown Exhibition 2020. It displays the new work of their artists and all 30 of the works are for sale. Much of the work reflects their emotions in this time of social distancing and lockdown.
