Independent politician and Dáil Deputy Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan TD – with a caricature I did of him – at the recent, very successful, fundraising art auction in Ballymahon for the vandalised Sculpture Garden in Newtowncashel, Co Longford. Flanagan was auctioneer for the evening.
A number of bog oak bird sculptures by my uncle Michael Casey have been destroyed by mindless vandals in the Newtowncashel Sculpture Garden in Newtowncashel, Co Longford. In order to raise funds to replace these beautiful sculptures an art auction has been organised by the Ballymahon Tidy Towns Taskforce, supported by Tidy Towns Committees from around the country.
Artists working in many different styles have donated work to the auction. Here is the (gouache & ink on paper) picture of mine that will be on sale.
The pictures will be on display from tomorrow, Wednesday 27th November, in Cooney’s Hotel, Ballymahon, Co Longford.
