Art Exhibition

Skies and Shrines at Solas Art Gallery

Celia Richard presents her exhibition 'Skies and Shrines' in Solas Art Gallery, Ballinamore from September 2- 24.

Celia Richard is French and has been living in and around Shercock, Co Cavan since 1998. As well as exhibiting around Ireland, France and the UK, she teaches art, craft and yoga in the community and in healthcare settings.

She consistently explores the art of emotional hygiene with a view to sharing her discoveries through exhibitions and workshops.

As Celia re-frames under-appreciated things of purpose cheek to jowl with old rubbish, worships objects of reverence, discarded bits of paper, clouds (or any other permutation), context becomes all important.

Pitching sacred against mundane and delighting in absurdity, Celia nudges us to question why we keep, why we discard - what we really value.

“Skies and Shrines” will be opened by artist curator Joe Keenan of the Townhall Cavan Arts Space at 7.30pm on September 2. For enquiries call (071) 9644210; or email:
