The Presentation Arts Centre presents a body of work by visual artist Emma Howe. This is Howe’s first solo exhibition of work in County Wexford. Howe has been a practicing visual artist since graduating from the National College of Art & Design in 2017. Now living and working in Dublin, this body of work is the fruition of many hours dedicated to studio practice outside of Howe’s regular working hours.

The artist addresses and challenges these false ideals presented as ‘facts’ through her work with the traditional art form of painting, she wishes to create a new standard for representing our experience of the world and encourages us to question the information we receive regarding the experiences of others. Presented in this exhibition are works based on various spaces Howe engages with and encounters in her own personal day to day life, transformed through experiments in paint and colour.
