The Very Small Gallery in Carrick will be showing a series of five exhibitions running consecutively from September to November.

The first in this series is “Injured Innocence” a collection of paintings and sketches by Brenda Clarke is opening this Friday, September 14. Brenda lives near Mohill with her two rescue greyhounds.

An incredibly talented artist, for a long time she created her pictures just using a brush, then she had the chance to go to the USA and learn how to use an airbrush. This is a longer and more complex form of art involving masking and cutting, but the end result combined with her painting talents have produced some amazing work.

Combined with her concern for endangered species the Very Small Gallery is proud to host this exhibition of paintings and sketches. These include glowing images of wolves, tigers, an amazing gorilla, cubs and of course, greyhounds. As well as doing portraits of dogs and people, Brenda also customises motorbikes and their accessories.These exhibitions are for the artists to show a condensed collection of their works and for the public to see a variety of different art forms during the winter months. “Injured Innocence” will open on this Friday from 5.30- 7.30pm with a glass of wine or juice and a chance to meet this interesting artist. The exhibition will run until September 27 to be followed by Karen Tighe on the September 28. Visit www.facebook.com/theverysmallgallery.
