Brushstrokes was formed in 1995/1996 by Sr Kathleen Owens with about 12 members and has flourished ever since. Today the group has around 30 members of which around half of these actively paint.
The group has two weekly sessions held (by kind permission of the nuns) in the Convent of Mercy, Lanesborough, on Wednesday mornings and Thursday evenings.
The group holds two exhibitions a year, in the summer and at Christmas.
Brushstrokes produced their first calendar in 2013 which sold out with the profits going to a local community group, following this success the group produced a 2014 calendar which also sold well.
