The collection was shown first in Ardara where the Donegal Designer Makers have a base before coming here to Carndonagh.”The visit to the peninsula, says Sharon, is the first time the Donegal Designer Makers Annual Exhibition has come to Inishowen, and she says the response has been terrific.Of course last Thursday was a night of double excitement for Sharon who also launched her own new collection. “All of the paintings in ‘A brush with the Wild Atlantic Way’ are inspired by Inishowen, the first stop on the Wild Atlantic Way. Thankfully there has been a brilliant response to that too and many of the pieces were even on reserve before they went on display,” she added.Meanwhile Ursula Donnelly of Donegal Local Enterprise Office who performed the official launch of both collections, said, with the new Creative Strategy now in place in Donegal, it is an exciting time for those involved in the creative industries.“Donegal Local Enterprise Office is delighted to have worked with both Sharon individually and Donegal Designer Makers as a group and we recognise that there is great energy among the talented people already co-creating and collaborating in Donegal. Our focus at the Local Enterprise Office within the strategy is to work with the sector to develop viable and sustainable businesses and we would actively encourage anyone in the creative industries in the county to get involved with the roll out of the strategy.”The dual collections launched last week are currently on display at the Silver Birch Gallery in Carndonagh and both exhibitions will continue to run until the end of August.If you would like a copy of the Creative Strategy for Donegal you can download it here http://bit.ly/1NnCW5r or alternatively make contact with Donegal Local Enterprise Office on 0749160735.
