Siobhan’s ‘open studio’ at Arts Centre

Artist Siobhan Cox-Carlos recently commenced a ten-day residency at the new art studios at Roscommon Arts Centre which runs until this Friday, October 22nd.

An open studio presents an opportunity to observe an artist working and see their new work in order to get an insight into their process.

Visits are by appointment only, in line with Covid regulations. Just phone Siobhan on 086-3647367 to either arrange an in-person viewing or a virtual tour and chat about her new work, which she is very happy to share.

Siobhan took up art as a hobby in her late twenties as a young mum and it quickly grew to be a lifelong passion. She continued studying art and design by attending GMIT part-time and then full-time at LCAD, where she was awarded an honours degree in Fine Art in 2004.

Siobhan’s paintings are full of colour and life and are often inspired by the local landscape, the mists and the atmospheric skies in the West of Ireland.

Siobhan’s work has been shortlisted for a French Residency in Hambly and Hambly, Enniskillen, and will feature in an exhibition there in November, with other shortlisted artists. She has also been awarded a solo show in Solas Art Centre in Ballinamore in March 2022.
