The Barrow Book

  • 09 February - 18 May


A collection of original watercolours by Stephen McKenna illustrating the Barrow river landscape, set alongside selected quotes from poets and writers about river life.

This beautiful gathering of words and imagery was curated in 2004 by artist Adam Bohanna as an artist’s book project. Published as part of Visualise Carlow, a series of temporary public art projects commissioned as an advance programme to VISUALs opening in 2009. The work was commissioned by the Carlow Local Authorities and kindly supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
