Throughout the month of September, Ballina Arts Centre will be part of the Mayo Arts Collaborative, presenting work by Niamh O'Malley. The exhibition project features thrilling and elegiac work by the Crossmolina native in five different arts venues around the county.
The Mayo born artist returns to her home county for this exhibition project featuring recent examples of her work in five different venues around the Mayo region. Creating a cultural trail through some of Ireland's most stunning landscapes, visitors are encouraged to engage with Niamh's work in exhibition spaces in Belmullet, Ballycastle, Ballina, Castlebar, and Westport.
Niamh's work combines video installation with sculptural objects and drawings, many of which draw on landscape as a subject. Her recent film works have portrayed diverse sites: From Britain's longest bridge, the pilgrimage island of Lough Derg, and an immense working quarry to the intimate space of an inner city garden. Niamh has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally.
Do not miss The Artist Talk at Ballina Arts Centre on Saturday, September 14 at 5.30pm. This introduction to her work will take place in the Gallery at Ballina Arts Centre Gallery and provides a wonderful opportunity to meet and hear the artist speak about her work.
