Xmas Pop-Up Exhibition 2009

Art Hive members organised a pop-up Christmas Exhibition in former clothes shop Chess Clothing, a now vacant unit in Market Place, Clonmel. In its short duration it received good local press attention and over 100 people visited the show over 4 days with a database of interested viewers gathered.
