Art News
Anne Hendrick's "Being without Finish" exhibition is presently showing at Wexford Arts Centre (until Aug 30). The talented and respected Wexford artist "explores feelings of optimism counter-balanced by disenchantment through flattened perspectives and unconventional dimensions, with the moon acting as the omnipresent muse." I know, sounds painful doesn't it! Whatever. It looks good on the walls so go see. http://www.wexfordartscentre.ie/upcoming-exhibition.html
Peter Pearson - Of Sea & Stone: Paintings 1974-2014 exhibition at Greenacres Gallery, Selskar, Wexford. Book of the same title is available to buy.
Stephen Brandes exhibition now showing at Wexford County Council, Carriglawn, Wexford. Runs until Sept 20. "The exhibition takes Brandes’ imagined landscapes as its point of departure to dwell upon the human desire for utopia. It is a celebration of the imagination and absurd meanderings of the artist that conjure up a dysfunctional yet comic utopian vision." (No I don't know what it means either.)
Cockleshell Gallery, Duncannon has a Summer Exhibition featuring local artists. Highlights: 'Sticks & Stones' by Barbara Kelly and 'Summer Fishing' by Mary Wallace.
Newtownbarry House, Bunclody hosts 'Sybils on the Slaney', a cooperative exhibition of 12 women painters and print makers. Runs until Aug 31.
An exhibition entitled entitled "Exposed Outlook" by glass artist Pauline Quigley is showing at the Tate Guerin Gallery, Wells House, Ballyedmond, near Gorey. Until Sept 21.
The Summer Exhibition is now on at The Sweetshop Gallery in Rosslare.
