Luan Gallery to host an Artist Talk on Saturday 30th April

Luan Gallery is delighted to host an Artist Talk with exhibiting artist; Derick Smith in conversation with Valeria Ceregini, Luan Gallery curator, on Saturday 30th April at 2pm.

The Artist Talk will be an informal conversation and tour of Derick’s exhibition, “The Soul of Matter” comprised of paintings, sculpture and works on paper currently on exhibition at Luan Gallery. It will give audiences an insight into his visual practice, use of materials, inspirations and process of making work.  There will be also be an opportunity for audience participation. This event is supported by Creative Ireland and Westmeath County Council.

The Soul of Matter introduces Smith’s exclusive series of mixed media works. This new body of vibrant works aims to stimulate the visitor to engage with colours, their essence and materiality which are featured in Smith’s paintings, works on paper and on clay. All the works made for this exhibition respond directly to the gallery space and create an interaction between the artwork and the surrounding environment which activates the vibrancy of Derick’s palette inspired by Mannerism masters.

This solo show aims to also attract people with no knowledge of contemporary art and encourage them to engage with the bright colours and the use of paintings beyond traditional flat surface.

The event is free but those interested in attending the Artist Talk, are advised to book in advance as places will be limited.  Contact Luan Gallery on 0906442154 or email info@luangallery.ie to register your interest. This outreach event is supported by Creative Ireland and Westmeath County Council.  The Soul of Matter continues until Sunday 19th June 2022.
