THE Blue House Gallery, Schull, following a highly successful and packed Culture Night programme last week, will be opening its final exhibition of the 2013 season on Friday 27th with a group show of all the members of the Mizen Artsists collective. 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.
The show will feature the work of seven artists who have recently joined the Mizen Artists Group and will showcase the wide range of styles that is symbolic of the versatility and creativity that is present on Mizen Peninsula.
Nature/Human Nature is a show that highlights Ann’s continued interest in our place in the cosmos.
Where we all fit in, our interactions with one another and the world around us, the role we all play in each others lives are all considered in this collection of work.
