Please join us between 7-9pm on Friday 30th June for the opening of our new exhibitions:
Drawing together three artists with disparate practices working in varied media, the new exhibitions at The Courthouse Gallery explore the environment, from the wild Atlantic coast to unnamed fiery worlds and a mysterious yet beautiful frozen landscape.
In the main gallery, West of Ireland based artist Isabelle Gaborit has mastered the ancient art of encaustic, or painting with pigmented wax, a technique mastered by the Greeks.
Hanne T Fisker meanwhile, is drawn to the wildness of the Clare coastline, photographing what she terms its ‘sea explosions’ at close quarters. In our Red Couch space, Cork-based artist Kathryn Kelly’s installation of photographs and light evoke explorations of the self, its cool ambiance belying the turmoil of the unknown.
