With a traditional wide variety of Art on display from talented local Artists, including Prints, Etchings, Fine Art, Contemporary, Modern etc and also Ceramics and Photography, the opportunity to invest in some Art, or indeed pick up a bargain or two, knowing that 25% of the sale Proceeds are being donated to two worhtwhile local Charities (Pierta House and Milford Hospice) should be a great incentive to visit this years exhibition which will be officially launched on Tues 2nd Aug at O'Brien's Pub on Roches St at 5.45pm.
The Traders will also announce the launching of their new Street Website, a great new initiative in these challenging times.
Chairperson - Sheila Cusack of Helene Modes and her committee , are working hard to ensure the success of the Festival and are aiming to surpass the £5,000 donated to Charity from the proceeds of last year Art Sales, which will add to the total of over €100,000 doinated to various Charities in the last 10 years by this unique Association.
Some of the beneficiaries in the past include: Spina Bifida, Down Syndrome Limerick, Red Cross, Milford Hostpice, Limerick Animal Welfare, St Gabriel's Centre, Bawnmore, The Oncology Unit, Alsymers and others.
