Landscape Of Memories Feature In New Exhibition In Ards


Visitors to Ards Arts Centre this month can view landscapes with a difference, looking at memories, instead of places.

The three-person exhibition features the work of recent graduates of the University of Ulster, who use their visual artwork to depict memories. dn_screen

Patricia James uses thin washes of paint to explore the unease which often underpins the well-behaved people captured in a family portrait, while Lyn McGaw adds and subtracts skins of paint to convey how we often misremember.

Printmaker, Joanne Walker, often uses maps as a background for her vertical images which reference our collective history in describing urban decay and regeneration.

“We’re delighted to be staging an exhibition with three new artists, all using a central theme, but presenting very different interpretations of that theme,” said Emily Crawford, Arts Officer with Ards Borough Council. “The work is very attractive and well worth a look!”.

‘Then’ is on show in the Georgian Gallery, Ards Arts Centre, Conway Square until 30 May. Admission is free.
