Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has unveiled a new permanent mosaic artwork in Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre.

Artist Helene Byrne of Dunseverick Art worked with participants from the Willow Group and friends to make the garden-themed piece over a ten-week period. The project was delivered by the Council’s Arts and Older People Programme, supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, The Baring Foundation and the Public Health Agency.

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Councillor Joan Baird OBE said: “This is a beautiful piece of art made by Limavady residents which we are delighted to unveil for permanent display in this vibrant arts and cultural centre. We are grateful to all our funders for their support, and I would encourage everyone to visit and view this beautiful piece for themselves.”

Over the past eighteen months, Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Arts and Older People Programme has held outreach mosaic projects in Cushendall and  Ballycastle with a previous exhibition held last summer in Flowerfield Arts Centre, Portstewart.

Feedback has been very positive with participants stating that the sessions have increased their confidence and encouraged them to take part in other arts activities.
