VISUAL ART: FOYER: Friday 20th - Saturday 28th March
An exhibition of paintings by artist Deirdre Walsh and photographs by Lynda Huxley, presented in conjunction with Chris and Lynda Huxley’s Lough Carra Booklaunch, Art & Illustrated Talks at the Linenhall.
Based in Partry, Co. Mayo, Deirdre Walsh is an established artist of many years standing, specialising in working en plein air. The nearby Lough Carra has provided an ongoing inspiration for her work. “Light is my inspiration... I chase the fleeting west of Ireland light. I am left in awe with every attempt to catch it.” Deirdre has exhibited widely in Ireland, and also in the US and N. Ireland, and has works in many collections including Leinster House and the OPW. She is represented by the Barbara Stanley Gallery, London.
Lynda Huxley has been photographing County Mayo’s unique marl lake, Lough Carra over the past 15 years.
