The Leitrim Design House are delighted to launch ‘Landlines’, an exhibition by Siobhan Leonard on ART WALL on Thursday October 27 at 7.30pm.

Siobhán Leonard is an artist based in Cloughjordan, Co. Tipperary. Her paintings are abstract in nature, creating ethereal spaces of emotional connection to a reminiscent landscape. Through a process of layering whether by palette knife or by brush, moments of serenity emerge that are both rewarding and evocative.


Each painting is inspired by nature and unique. This is a great opportunity to own a true original that will grow in both appreciation and value. Deposits are welcome on any work which can be gradually paid off in the coming weeks to Christmas.


This launch occurs on the same evening as the Buille performance in the Dock at 8.30pm on October 27.


With four incredible musicians Caoimhin Vallely Niall Vallely, Brian Morrissey and Ed Boyd, Buille have blazed a trail through traditional and contemporary music since forming in 2005 and are well worth catching. So why not join us for both events, enjoy these colourful works and meet with Siobhan to chat about her work and influences. www.siobhanleonard.com
