The Mart Project | Stories of a Community.

The Mart Project _ Stories of a Community


This multi-sensory exhibition was based on artist Laura’s experience of visiting sale days at local livestock marts in Co. Roscommon. The exhibition included audio recordings from those who were and are involved in this community, with a particular focus on the elderly. The exhibition also plays host to an extensive collection of photographs taken at various marts throughout the county, including Roscommon town, Castlerea and Elphin.


This exhibition was supported by the Roscommon County Council Creative Ireland Programme, under the Creativity in Older Age Fund 2021.

Exhibited at Roscommon Arts Centre, Roscommon Town. 26th March - 9th April 2022
