Templemore Library was the crowded setting as local artist Garry Sheppard launched his first ceramic exhibition on Thursday 7th February 2013. As the “Cois Farraige” title suggests, the theme of the display focussed on ceramic vessels capturing the natural beauty of the seashore.
After a career in the upholstery business it was at the local Templemore College of Further Education (formerly St Sheelan’s College) that Garry grasped the opportunity to return to education.
Initially studying Interior Design under Nicola Welford, who gave Garry enormous help and her encouragement developed an interest in design and this led to the Art College in Limerick. The exhibition will run in the Library in Templemore for the month of February and all are welcome to drop in and view the unique ceramic display.
