Upcoming Art Exhibitions

Ruth Williams’ “Interlude”, from the 1st of April to the April 30th. A collection of fine art including paintings, textiles and ceramics. Here’s a few words from the artist about her work:

‘In my work, I try to recreate emotion. I achieve this through colour and the creation of silhouettes. I want the colours t have a sensuous trigger for the viewer. Allowing the viewers to be transported back to a moment in his or her own lives. There is no denying that we as people will always reminisce on precious experiences and it is these experiences that I find myself fixated on, yearning to relive them. As an artist, I am drawn to creating a literal impression of what once was, and to some, extent, what can be now again.’

Chris Nwagwe will be exhibiting his collection of digital photography from the 1st of May until the 30th of May.

Abbeyleix F.E.C. will be displaying their work from the 1st of June until the 30th of June.
