The Sea Takes Back Its Own. An Exhibition of Paintings by Esther O'Kelly

Framewerk invite you to an opening of work by local artist Esther O'Kelly. February 18th 2-5pm.

Esthers theme's are inspired by sealife and a long family tradition of fishermen. Each piece evokes a strong coastal connection. Drawn towards the beauty and natural forms of the coastline, Artist Esther O’Kelly creates vibrant paintings that seek to capture a memory and evoke a sense of place. 

'The majesty of our coastline inspires me, the inherent beauty of the landscape and the story it tells of inhabitants past and present and the wild, romantic windswept nature of it, I'm inspired by the rich vibrant layers of peeling paint, yellow gorse and pink sea thrift, framed against the movement of the raging sea.'

The Artist will give a brief talk as part of the opening event.

The exhibition runs from February 13th - 25th
