Opening Saturday 8 April, 7pm
The first solo exhibition by emerging artist Johanna Nulty at Townhall Cavan Arts Space opening on Saturday 8th April 2017. The exhibition will be opened by leading Irish visual artist Aideen Barry.
Local artist Johanna Nulty invites you to join her for the opening of her first solo show titled “A Portrait of the Region”. In this exhibition Nulty presents a series of sculptural assemblages made from an assortment of items collected from people in her hometown of Cavan. Each artwork is titled with a local Cavan surname. Taking Objects as signifiers of how we live Nulty explores the potential of these objects together to form “Multiple personas”. By re-configuring household goods into abstract or figurative forms, she liberates them from being functional objects and allows them to develop new identities in unfamiliar settings.
Johanna Nulty will exhibit “A Portrait of the Region” at Cavan for three weeks in April 2017 with an opening event on Saturday 8 April continuing on till 29 April 2017. She has selected artist Sally O’Dowd as mentor and curator for this show. Bullock Lane Residency is an initiative of Cavan County Council arts office and supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
