Saturday 14th May – Saturday 4th June. As part of Bealtaine’s KCAT partnership, KCAT Studio artist Andrew Pike will show his latest works at Damer House in Tipperary during May. Damer House Gallery is a new artist-run space in Roscrea, whose co-directors are Thierry Rudin and Patricia Hurl, core BEALTAINE collaborators over the years. Damer House Gallery is supported by OPW.
Having been a gardener in Camphill Duffcarrig, Gorey, for many years, Andrew Pike decided on a career as an artist and studied art for two years in Ormonde College, Kilkenny, before becoming one of the first artists to join the KCAT Studio. Andrew has travelled extensively to Holland, France, Germany, America, Australia, and Japan and these cultural exchanges are a great inspiration to his work. Though most well-known for his painting, Andrew has award winning animations to his credit as well as co-designing The Big River parade with Sinéad Fahey and Macnas.
KCAT is an open access inclusive arts and life-long learning initiative promoted by the Camphill Communities of Ireland. Click here to find out more www.kcat.ie
