I am delighted to be facilitating this upcoming workshop in the Johnston Library, Farnham Street Cavan. As part of The Tyrone Guthrie collection exhibition. The advertisement reads: Join visual artist Niamh O'Connor for a twist on the traditional ' Trace Monotype', rather then inked plates and rollers discover the experimental approach of creating soft line drawings using heated palettes, wax saturated papers and pencil. This printerly drawing process requires you bring your own reference images for inspiration, as you explore this contemporary approach to this most traditional artform.
There are very limited spaces so be sure to book sooner rather then later if interested...look forward to seeing you there. N.
I had the great good fortune recently to be asked open exhibitions DISENGAGED and PERCEPTION by Visual Artists Gabrielle Flynn and Miriam Fitzgerald Juskova , curated by Brendan Dean at Solas Art Gallery in Ballinamore, Co.Leittim. (I gave them a shout out on my recent Vlog!).
These very different Artists and their body of works have a strange syncronicity in making us ask questions of ourselves, both from an outter and inner standpoint. I wish to again congratulate these ladies on a wonderful show and encourage you to go see...it it sonething that will sit with you for sometime x N
