Opening Thursday 17th June at 7pm
North Louth Artists have assembled work completed during the lockdown, as the butterfly prepares to emerge from its chrysalis, they celebrate emerging from lockdown with colour and form in their individual styles and mediums, reconnecting with each other and with their many loyal customers.
The North Louth Artists, a group of professional artists who exhibit together once a year, was founded by Nano Reid and Bea Orpen in 1968.
Having been unable to have an actual exhibition last year due the pandemic, makes this year’s exhibition entitled ’Chrysalis’ all the more exciting and compelling. Each artist’s response to the pandemic, life in lockdown and emerging from that and their expression of it in this collection makes the exhibition really interesting in its variation and interpretation.
The exhibition features a variety of pieces ranging from visual realism and figuration through to conceptual abstraction.
List of artists exhibiting: Ciara Agnew, Derek Bell, Sandra Bell, Gerry Clarke, Patrick Conyngham, Siobhan Conyngham, Paula Eigenheer, Robert Kelly, John O’Connor, Omin, Rosemary Warren, Irene Woods and guest sculptors Anna Campbell and John McLoughlin.
