Luan Gallery hosts Artist’s Talk on Saturday 19th February
Luan Gallery presents Eamonn Maxwell in conversation with exhibiting artists; in conversation with artists; Cecilia Danell, Hilary Kinahan and Rosemarie Langtry on Saturday 19th February at 2pm. This event is supported by Creative Ireland and Westmeath County Council.
The artists’ talk will be an informal conversation and tour of the 3 exhibitions and will delve into each artist’s practice and in particular focus on the theme and process of making their work currently on exhibition at Luan Gallery. There will be also be an opportunity for audience participation. The talk will also serve as a public introduction to Luan Gallery’s new Curator, Valeria Ceregini.
Featuring three distinct exhibitions of work, each artist occupies a solo space in the gallery. With Galway based Danell’s ‘Tactile Terrain’ taking residence in the Library Gallery, Midland’s Langtry’s ‘Rooted to the Land’ residing in the River Gallery, and Westmeath’s Kinahan’s RAPT, presented in the New Gallery space, these exhibitions show a variety of works in painting, print, mixed media, tapestry and sculpture. Though innately different in practice, style and approach, there are common threads throughout these three exhibitions. Each artist looks at landscape, environment and memory, and offers unique responses to the themes.
