The Stradbally Arthouse artist in residence, Lorraine Walsh presents a new multidisciplinary exhibition this month, which deals with the nebulous relationship between nature and culture.
‘The Clearing’ explores both our perception of and connection to the natural world and includes drawing, painting, photography and installation of found, natural materials.
The works in the exhibition were developed during the artist’s residency at the Arthouse studios, Stradbally where the artist was a recipient of the Laois Arthouse Studio Award 2014.
Work created by participants during the artist’s community engagement projects will be exhibited in the Arthouse to coincide with The Clearing. The works include portraits of pet animals and a wildlife light installation displaying children’s shadow puppets. ‘The Clearing’ opens on Thursday,January 22 at 1.30pm.
