This exhibition of contemporary drawing takes place online and features the work of 5 artists – Conor O’Grady, Nuala Clarke, Gus Lynott, Val McLoughlin and Úna Morris.
The artworks in this exhibition offer interpretations of ‘drawing’ in the broadest sense. Rather than thinking of drawing as a means to an end (i.e. a painting), these artists offer finished pieces that investigate mark-making using a range of unusual tools and materials alongside or instead of the more traditional pen, pencil and brush.
Ideas of ‘place’ have been central to many artists work throughout time. And these ideas become even more interesting, complex and worthy of investigation during these strange coronavirus times. But this is not an exhibition of ‘covid’ drawings, rather it is a chance to slow down and spend time with works that offer a chance of exploring a little of the artist’s journey, as well as selection of works that blur boundaries between drawing and other media.
The show continues Ballina Fringe Festival’s commitment to providing opportunities for local artists at the festival.
Exhibition runs Mon-Sat 9-18 October. Exhibition launch takes place Friday 9 October at 7pm on Facebook.
