Art is one of the most popular activities enjoyed by users of The Base, Cookstown providing opportunities for relaxation, self– expression and development of new skills, all of which promote a great sense of well–being.
This showcase brings together some of the work produced by the Tuesday Art Club which is led by artist Andrea Hayes, alongside other pieces created by those who have developed their own independent interest in art. The exhibition includes a variety of textile, ceramic and painted works, and demonstrates in many cases the
amazing progression made by the artists over the years.

Collective has been created to provide local professional artists with an exhibition platform to present their work to the public on an ongoing basis. We believe that the diverse artistic talent within our district should be celebrated and this exhibition, in the first instance brings together the work of eight of our most successful artists. Many are well known, others up and coming.
Both individually and collectively there is much to be proud of. We hope you enjoy this collaborative showcase. All pieces are available for sale.
