There was plenty of talent on show last week in Drinagh Retail Park.

The third year Art students from Carlow IT Wexford Campus held their annual exhibition called Enigma (A Journey into the unconscious mind). The 18 students created a variety of work for the exhibtion which was opened last Tuesday by local artist David Begley.

Some of the pieces on display included paintings, sculptures, photographs and prints.

The exhibtion which ran for a week marked the culmination of many months of hard work and commitment. The exhibition showed the journey the students have taken together into the enigmatic world of the unconscious and outwards again to demonstrate their creative skills, learning, and critical reflection over the past few months.

The students thanked all their lecturers, family and friends for all their help over the past number of months to get the exhibition ready.
