Journey at Solas Art Gallery Ballinamore

Postcard Series by Eileen Ferguson

Solas Art Gallery is proud to present Journey, an exhibition of Paintings and Prints by Eileen Ferguson.
The new exhibition opens this Friday, June 8 at 7.30pm by Rita Duffy.


Artist Eileen Ferguson was born in Edinburgh. She studied BA Hons Fine Art at The Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art Dundee 1982-1986.
She then went on to Study an MA in Fine Art at the University of Ulster at Belfast 1988 to 1989.
Eileen has exhibited widely in Ireland from Dublin to Strabane, Belfast to Sligo.
She has exhibited in group shows worldwide; Normandy, Edinburgh, New York and Claremorris to mention a few and now arrives at Solas Art Gallery in Ballinamore until the June 30.


Aiden Dunne writing in the Irish Times says; “Eileen Ferguson whose narrative works incorporate landscape but are primarily concerned with a sense of place memory and history.”
International artist Rita Duffy will be back to Solas Art Gallery, as she officially opens Eileen’s exuberate show. Rita’s studies in Art & Design and Fine Art have led to her hugely recognised autobiographical style of Irish identity and politics.


See you at the launch this Friday evening, June 8 at 7.30pm for wine and nibbles!
