We’ve just received our first eMail from the Kilkenny Arts Week organising committee about their festival plans for August 2014.
This is a timely reminder to all of us in KPS to start planning our panel for our Arts Week annual exhibition. There’s no time like the present to start planning your new images and the layout of your panel.
Nearer the event we’ll be checking with you to verify if you intend to enter a panel this year.
The following is an excerpt from the Arts Festival committee’s email:
First highlights of Kilkenny Arts Festival 2014 announced!
Spring is in the air, and at Kilkenny Arts Festival there’s an exciting sense of renewal.
