Students from IT Carlow marked the halfway point of their artistic studies when they opened the doors on their first self-directed art exhibition 'Halfway There'.

Fourteen students were met with a very positive response from visitors when displayed their work at their art studios in Hill Street. While scuptors showed off their head models, painters put their monochrome paintings and object depictions on display.

The artists involved are mainly mature students. They are Amanda J. Fitzpatrick, Mirona Mara, Bella Bonet, Judy Choi, Kevin Martin, Andy Kingshott, Jimmy Leonard, Hannah Bates, Sheena Furlong, Dara McGill, Deirdre Travers, Luke Monaghan, Ann Doherty and Jackie White.
