Art that Connects at The Leitrim Design House


Art that Connects at Leitrim's Design House

“November in the Park”

The Leitrim Design House are delighted to host a new exhibition on ARTWALL by local artist Kara Doherty titled ‘Connected’.

Kara worked abroad for many years but returned home setting up her studio in the beautiful village of Cootehall.
Kara has devoted herself seriously to painting since 2016 and is constantly inspired by her surrounding landscape and the spaces we inhabit. She loves to observe the movement and textures in the sea, rivers, lakes, fields and mountains which become the focus of her paintings. Working in both acrylics and oils, with a multitude of palette knives and brushes she explores her personal response to the ever changing elements of nature.

Kara’s atmospheric seascapes are at times described as foreboding, warning of the continuous threat to our beautiful but fragile world. The ever changing drama of the skies, she sees as ‘the canopy of our world’ fuels Kara’s passion for painting.
This series of seascapes and landscapes is on view from August 18th and runs until the end of September in The Leitrim Design House, Carrick-on-Shannon.

Kara’s paintings have been in great demand recently so a lot of interest is expected in this local artist.
