THE GALWAY Arts Centre is inviting people to the opening of two new exciting exhibitions at 6pm this evening.
Dee McDonnell, the 2008 winner of the Galway Arts Centre and Galway City and County Councils Student Award will exhibit Here’s nothing…hold it tight in Gallery 3, while Limerick based artist and printmaking lecturer Breda Lynch will exhibit a large new body of work entitled Song to the Siren.
Here’s nothing…hold it tight employs everyday domestic and found objects from nature, McDonnell’s work is a world of hidden narratives where buttons and coathangers can come to life in humorous and unexpected ways.
Song to the Siren is comprised of a body of new drawings and photographic works by Breda Lynch. It also includes a specially made video/sound installation titled ‘The Kiss’, a collaborative piece by Lynch and Cork based artists Not Abel.
This solo show explores and draws inspiration from areas of the Gothic that examine gender identity within art, literature, film and more contemporary influences such as Goth street style, music and subculture.
The exhibitions run until October 3. For more information visit www.galwayartscentre.ie
