The Village

This project celebrates Beth McGahon’s rural upbringing with references to particular events from her childhood. The work is created in the style of notices and publications produced by the people within a rural community. The notices on the board have been designed in response to queries about her work. They are there to give clarity to the viewer and provide reasoning for the project.
A small art opening was organised at the notice board in the village where McGahon gave a speech which explains the project. This also allows her work to be seen in the correct environment.
