An exciting exhibition by two artists, Pauline Terry and Amy McGovern is running until Friday, April 26 at the Yeats Gallery, Sligo.

This exhibition is the result of two artists meeting at Sligo IT and finding that their creativity and thought processes worked well together, in spite of coming from different cultures. They both graduated in 2011 with BA Hons in Fine Art. Now they share a studio and have decided to create “Unknown”, an exhibition of their paintings and drawings.

Pauline Terry is originally from England, where her profession was restoring antiques, but she always had a longing to study art. Pauline’s process is mixed media where images are either added directly to the painting or painted in. She then layers paint over the image, which in turn can create a whole new dimension to the work in an instant. Pauline’s work is bold, vibrant and fascinating, one could spend a long time just looking at one of the 10 pieces she will be exhibiting.

Amy McGovern, on the other hand, was born in Sligo, and is still there where there is plenty of inspiration for her work. Amy’s delicate drawings and paintings on old invoices, wallpaper, remnants of the buildings past, speak volumes about present society. Not only are they thought provoking but also each an individually attractive piece of art.

The exhibition runs until 26th April, for any further information please contact Pauline at donovanterry@eircom.net or Amy on www.facebook.com/amymcgovernartist.
