Helen Mac Mahon will be taking part in ‘Tactile’, Catalyst Arts upcoming exhibition. Opening Thursday 6th of March and running until the 14th.


An exhibition of work to coincide with The Belfast Children’s Festival.

Tactile is a one to one experience that has a direct encounter with the viewer, that reinforces the bond between artist and audience. Tactile embraces engagement with the work rather than the usual “Do Not Touch Artworks’.

Works from Rachel Campbell Palmer, DSNT, Clodagh Lavelle, David Fredrick Mahon and Helen Mac Mahon.

Ormond Art Studios is an artist-led initiative in Dublin city and is a platform for emerging visual artists. It supports the development of arts practice through affordable studio provision, critical discourse and space for events, residencies and exhibitions. The physical studios consists of eight individual artist's spaces along with a separate area that serves as the Project Space. The Project Space offers scope for work on a larger scale, embodied practice and experimentation. It is in this space that feedback sessions, events and exhibitions happen. We believe that critical discourse is hugely beneficial to developing a professional arts practice and essential to a dynamic arts community. Ormond Art Studios encourages members to open up their practise to peer critique and facilitates lively feedback sessions, residencies, and information/skills sharing initiatives. We believe in collaboration and connect with other creative initiatives to develop a network of support for artist‐led endeavours in Dublin and beyond. For more information please contact us at ormondartists@gmail.com Ormond Art Studios is kindly supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
