Artist Talk and Arts Bursary Information Session with Shauna McGowan.
This artist talk, hosted by Shauna McGowan, will explore her work in progress exhibition ‘Echo’ which will be on display in the Sunburst Gallery.
Shauna was the 2016 recipient of the Ards and North Down Arts Bursary Residency to Ballinglen Arts Foundation, and her exhibition and artist talk will reflect on her time there exploring printed textile surfaces. She was particularly inspired by the stillness and energy of the landscape which encouraged her vibrant and arresting prints.
This informal evening will also feature short presentations of the work created by other recent recipients of the Tyrone Guthrie Residency and the Ballinglen Residency, including visual artists Michael Geddis and Alice Burns, and writer Kelly Creighton.
This free event will be an opportunity for artists to find out more about the residential opportunities supported through Ards and North Down Borough Council and to network with other artists, however anyone is welcome to attend as it will appeal to all audiences, as well as practicing artists.
