I have works in this upcoming exhibition which opens on the 27th of November 2014 in Trinity House, Thomas Ashe St. Cavan. The exhibition runs daily 12- 6pm, until the 7th of December.
This exhibition was curated and organised by poet Heather Brett following a series of talks and lectures up in the Cavan Burren and surrounding areas such as Dowra, the Marble Arch Caves and Lough Ouchter. I gave a talk myself at one of the events up in the Cavan Burren about the use of texture within art.
The exhibition will showcase some of the participants’ works, not limited to visual art but also including poetry and music.
There is a facebook page for the event: www.facebook.com/responsetobeauty
‘A Fragile Trust’ – readings of poetry and music along with art from participants to the Response to Beauty Project (including myself) as part of Culture Night 19th Sept, Buddhist Centre, Bawnboy.
I gave a talk as part of the Response to Beauty events in the Cavan Burren and wider Geopark which stretches across the border of north west Cavan and into Eniskillen in the Northern Ireland. Also speaking were photographer Milca Gabb and poet Noel Monaghan. The aim of the project which was organised and coordinated by Heather Brett was to bring together a loose network of creatives in and around Cavan county in Ireland and to use the Cavan Burren and wider Geopark encompassing the Marble Arch caves in Eniskillen as inspiration for their various art practices which cover story telling, photography, poetry, art and music.
This exhibition is a showcase for some of the responses to the area with a possible enlarged exhibition on the same theme to come later.
Exhibition opens 7pm on the 19th September 2014 at Jampa Ling Buddhist Centre, – all welcome. Further details on the invite above.
I have been a neglectful website updater – the reason being I’ve been very busy finalising all the stuff for my solo show. However, one shouldn’t forget to alert people that their solo show is in fact on at all.
Above is the beautifully designed invitation for the exhibition (design for Meath County Council by www.spudgun.net)
And here is the information about the exhibition:
The exhibition is presented by Meath County Council Arts Office.
The opening night is on Tuesday 26th of August at 7pm in Ashbourne Library and Cultural Centre.
The exhibition, entitled ‘Me and My Shadow’ will be opened by award-winning author of The Herbalist Niamh Boyce.
The exhibition explores various emotions one experiences in solitude, with doll-like figures posing within their personal environments and evoking different emotions such as dreams, thoughts, hopes and fears.
The exhibition runs until the 23rd of September and is open during library hours.
Below is a piece publicising the show featured in the current edition of the Meath Chronicle.
My third solo is coming up this August 26th and will run until September 23rd. It’s taking place in the Toradh Gallery which is in Ashbourne, Meath. I will be showing a mixture of paintings and small sculptural works in wall-hanging boxes which I’m busy working on right now (which is why this website and blog has not been updated often enough).
The 2014 Toradh programme can be found here for dates of this year’s other exhibitors.
