With sculpture, painting, prints, fabric-art, photography, watercolours and hangings, a wide and captivating range of work will be displayed, embracing both internationally known artists as well as artists at the beginning of their exhibiting careers.
Damaris Lysaght says “My paintings are a way of meditating on nature. They are a way of being aware of its growth and inter-relationships, varying moods and atmospheres. The colours, textures, patterns and light effects are endless and ever changing….every second in nature is unique. My paintings are an effort to capture a moment or fragment of this.”
This exhibition demonstrates the extraordinary depth of talent and range of styles found amongst Mizen Artists group.
