Esther O'Kelly Solo Show in Wexford Town

I'm honoured to announce that artist Bernadette Doolan will be the Guest Speaker at my show, opening in Pigyard Gallery next week.

I have long been an admirer of Bernadette's beautiful paintings, her poignant and hopeful themes resonate with me. There is a delicate and fragile nature in Bernadette's work that inspires me, qualities that I aspire to.

Irish artist Bernadette Doolan, living in Wexford and winner of The best overall work by a non Academician in The Royal Ulster Academy annual exhibition. Bernadette explores the fragility of identity in the context of childhood. Working in Painting and sculpture, she approaches topics of social conscience with sensitivity and respect to explore the intangible notion of truth. Doolan acknowledges vulnerability whilst not apportioning blame. This is left to the relevant parties, as an artist her role is to bring awareness and allow the space for the individual to question.

My Show 'Amhrán Na Farraige' opens June 30th at 6.30pm,

The exhibition runs from June 30th - 21st July at The Pig Yard Gallery, Wexford. All Welcome.
