The Arthouse Gallery, Stradbally is hosting a solo exhibition by Kildare artist Vera McEvoy entitled ‘Shine’, which will run until February 13.
The work documents the transient movement of light and shadow within a public building and the ephemeral silhouetted presence of people as they impact and alter that space.
Vera McEvoy was the recipient of the inaugural Arthouse NCAD Graduate Award and Bursary in 2011 - 2012. She has exhibited extensively nationally and internationally since 2007. The work is supported by both Laois and Roscommon County Council Arts Offices.
The exhibition opening hours are Tuesday to Friday, 10am - 4pm, or by appointment contact Muireann Ni Chonaill on 057/664109 8664033.
Vera’s work will also feature in an Arthouse exhibition on the theme of the Midlands, which begins on Thursday, February 27. Other artists exhibiting are Saidhbhín Gibson, Jock Nichol, Ken Wardrop and Lisa Fingleton. Each of the artists invited has a unique take of their experience of the Midlands and this exhibition is an exploration of this. The exhibition will be curated by Muireann Ní Chonaill, arts officer.
