Poetry Underfoot- A Rainy Day Surprise!

  • From 10 September
  • Bawn Street, Strokestown

Local artist Siobhan Cox-Carlos will create a ‘rain paint’ installation for the week of Poetry Town (10-18 Sept), incorporating lines from a Roscommon inspired poem. 

Rainworks are a type of street art applied with a special spray paint which is invisible when dry, but when activated by rain, reveal the pattern created by the artist. 

Stop and Read – the full poem will hang nearby. 

Siobhan Cox-Carlos is a contemporary Irish artist based in her native Strokestown, Co Roscommon. She has been the recipient of several grants and bursaries from her local Arts Office and was awarded a residency for the Tyrone Guthrie Centre by Roscommon County Council in 2014. 

Her work is represented in private collections in Ireland, Europe, America, Bermuda, Mexico, and Australia. It is also represented in the OPW State Art Collection, Roscommon County Council Civic Collection, National Cancer Screen Service (for which she was awarded a % for Art Scheme in 2010)
