Latest - KAC Lockdown Virtual Exhibition June 2020
Like many others, members of Kilmood Art Club used their time in isolation and at home to pursue their art. KAC members agreed, in the absence of other outlets, to publish their artworks in a virtual exhibition. We hope you enjoy seeing the exhibits in our Gallery
The KAC Committee are working with members to plan an evolving programme for the remainder of the year to reflect our new normal "until we meet again".
Due to restrictions during the Coronavirus pandemic there will be no club meetings until further notice. We will maintain contact with members by email, Facebook, our website and post and are working on ideas for this to keep our art going.
