Veiled Spaces: An exhibition by Mary Lavelle-Burke (running now until December 22)

Living on Achill Island, Mary Lavelle-Burke’s work is invariably influenced by the ever-changeable mood of nature, weather and climate. Her recent work presents a veil between myself and places and spaces that are very familiar to her.

Mary explains, “A transitory cloak emerges, built through textured layers of cold wax and oil, creating a mysterious and intangible space between me and my intimate worlds”.

With this temporary separation, the anticipation of the uncovering is felt and there is an eminent dawn of revelation breaking through this veil leading to a vulnerable transparency of matter and spirit.  This exhibition will spark all your senses . . .

Runs until 22nd December. Free admission.

Supported by Mayo County Council


EXHIBITION: Stories Untold: Veronika Straberger & Marie Coyne (Opening: Thursday November 8, 8pm – runs until December 22)

Stories Untold is a joint exhibition project between photographer Marie Coyne, and ceramic artist Veronika Straberger. It is brought together by the love for an island, its people and its history.

Images on clay and paper speak of memories. Traces of stories imprinted into the landscape in the shape of mysterious sea ceramics washed ashore, invite the visitor to embark on an imaginary journey to a distant past.
