‘Where Spirit Lies’ is a new exhibition of paintings and poetry by Leitrim artist Maria Noonan-McDermott.

This is an exhibition that will appeal to everyone. It has a blend of landscapes, seascapes, figurative paintings and still life, all portrayed in Maria’s unique style.

Maria says ‘Where Spirit Lies’ is a celebration, a prayer of thanksgiving for all that is good in this world. It’s a matter of just focusing-in on the positives; children’s laughter, a helping hand, a gift of flowers, a warm smile, a summer breeze or a river wild. A person reaches a stage in their life when they know what’s truly important...

“For me, nothing gives me more pleasure than sharing a meal with family and friends, a long walk on the beach or a stroll in the woods by the river.

It brings me right back to my childhood when life was simple, yet deeply cherished.”

The exhibition opens at The Roundabout Gallery, Collooney, Co Sligo opened on Thursday, October 4 and runs until October 25.
