On Thursday night we had the opening of our joint exhibition, Land, Sea and Air in Castle Espie. This exhibition is the first time me, my mum and my sister have had an exhibition together. It was a lot of work getting ready for it but it was all worthwhile - so many people turned up for the opening night, we were really chuffed!
We started with a little celebratory glass of champagne…
My piece was called Irish Lights - a concertina book of lithographs of drawings of all of the lighthouses around ireland - 73 of them in total!
It worked out pretty long in the end, 7 metres when laid out flat, about 4 metres when concertina’d.
I also created a large print of all the lighthouses together (as I figured most people probably wouldn’t want to buy a 7 metre book for their house!)
Sarah had beautiful paintings of wildlife including hares, pheasants and stags. As well as a selection of drawings and prints.
and mum had gorgeous landscapes and still lifes.
The exhibition is on until the 9th June so there’s plenty of time to have a look if you’d like to. There is a lovely cafe at Castle Espie so you can team it with some tasty lunch or a cup of tea and a brownie, and of course you can always go and see the ducks as well!
78 Ballydrain Road, Comber, Co Down
