Clayton Whites Hotel





Together once again, Mary Wallace who paints and sculptor Gilly Thomas exhibit in Clayton Whites Hotel. They look forward to meeting old friends and new in the gallery space they create each year for Wexford Festival Opera.

Thomas is concentrating on forms that remind her of the countryside; just a glimpse of birds and animals seen from afar. Her sculptures show the simplicity of the creature but keep the essence with clean lines and intuitive shape. Gilly creates bronze pieces that invite you to touch with both eye and hand.

In contrast Wallace’s vibrant use of colour suspended in beeswax makes for an opulent visual experience; especially when paired with pure gold. She continues her exploration of ideas inspired by the Japanese perception of beauty in imperfection, complexity in simple things and extraordinary in the everyday. Expect exquisite tea bowls, majestic moon jars and other precious things.

This dynamic pair have exhibited together on many occasions and are well known at the Wexford Festival Fringe. The exhibition runs for the duration of Wexford Festival Opera – Friday 19th October to Sunday 4th November 2018.
