FINNISH ARTIST Arja Sweeney believes the landscape of her native North Karelia has much in common with Connemara, where she now lives. "They show similarity in its true spirit," she says. "The colours in the landscape are a painting in itself."
Landscape is the central focus of her new exhibition, Walking In Nature, which features mixed media paintings, and runs in the Renzo Café Gallery, Eyre Street, from September 24 to November 4. The artist said these works are "a sensitive, poignant observation and commentary on nature and its ever-changing moods".
The exhibition will be officially opened on Saturday October 6 at 7.30pm. It will be in aid of the Galway Hospice. All are welcome to the opening.
