Persona, Exhibition at the Courthouse Gallery, Ennistymon, County Clare.

Persona opens on Friday the 15th January and runs until the 4th February, 2016.  The show is made up of mainly new works, with just a few older works included. Do come along to see the exhibition if you are in the area.

Its such an interesting process hanging an exhibition and seeing the paintings outside of the work space of the Studio for the first time.  The white gallery walls give them all more space and lots of different interactions seem to come into play between the paintings.  Having unpacked the work, I sat down with Trudi van der Elsen, Curator of the Gallery and we talked and had tea as we looked around us at the paintings leaning against the walls.  Then we began moving work around and pausing for a look at each arrangement.  Working with Trudi was great and she was so helpful with suggestions and advice.  Then we had a short break, so we could get away from the gallery for a while, before returning and making our final decisions with fresh eyes and then in a really short time it was hung and ready for the opening on Friday!
