Emerging Artists which opens on Friday, May 3 at 7pm presents the work of four remarkable people who began their artistic lives in middle age or later, Zofia Malanowska, Hilton Miller, Renata Mooney & Benita Stoney.
Hilton Miller began painting in the early 1970s after walking away from a growing academic career as a statistician at Cambridge and Birkbeck College at the University of London. Miller’s son, painter Nick will talk about his father’s work on the evening of the exhibition opening.
Renata Mooney strives for a deeper and truer understanding of both the world around her and who she is. Her life and insights are reflected within what she draws and paints.
Renata Mooney’s work shows ongoing concerns through a developed and extended means of application.
Painter Paddy McCann and Renata will speak on her work on the evening of the opening.
The Warsaw-based, Zofia Malanowska began her prolific career in fine art embroidery in her 70s and is working steadily today well into her ninth decade.
Kazimierz Malanowski, Zofia’s son, is traveling especially from Poland to be there on the evening of the exhibition opening.
For Benita Stoney it was always either words or paint. The words took over, for one reason and another, and so instead of going to art school, she went to university and but kept returning to painting the landscapes which were closely bound up with her sense of home and belonging in County Mayo. Benita Stoney will talk about her work on the evening of the opening.
