An environmental installation on the main Cathedral floor based on the Ark. Influenced by the bushfires of Australia and the impact on wildlife of the ever decreasing green spaces in Ireland, the Ark was created using fallen branches from native trees and woodlands of Co. Antrim.

Rosalind Lowry, an award-winning artist born in Northern Ireland, attended Chelsea School of Art & Saint Martin’s School or Art in London before returning to her native land to set her up studio.

As Artist in Residence for the Lough Neagh Landscape Partnership, she has recently created a series of installations in the boglands and peatlands of County Tyrone, with a view of helping preserve the Irish curlew and highlight the plight of the disappearing natural landscape and peatlands of Ireland.
Rosalind has also completed a number of residencies across the world, from Rathlin Island to a North Vietnam residency focused on natural dyes, another in Quebec dedicated to decaying old buildings, and a third for the State Government of Alaska as Artist in Residence in the national parks of Alaska, completed in 2019. Rosalind lived and worked in a remote area of the Alaskan wilderness creating a land art trail to attract people into the parks and natural spaces of the area.
