Deirdre McKenna

Oileáin / Ynysoedd
From Dingle to Machynlleth

23 June to 4 August 2018
Ruralist Room

Deirdre McKenna spent a month on a residency exchange here in September 2017. Her work is influenced by the traditions of her home in the South West of Ireland. As a native Irish speaker she was interested in exploring the connections between Wales and Ireland through the language and other cultural links. This exhibition is a result of that exploration.

Beyond the World

23 June to 4 August 2018

This exhibition is a series of paintings existing somewhere between reality and fantasy. They are imaginary, otherworldly and mystic places, but have been inspired by the striking mountains of Snowdonia. The paintings convey positivity and hope as light penetrates intensely through the shadows.
