Beyond Edges exhibition opens at Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre
Tue, October 19, 2021
Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre is thrilled to present a new joint exhibition featuring the work of three female artists living and working in North Antrim.
In Beyond Edges, Andrea Spencer (glass), Nicola Nemec (paint) and Sharon Adams (wood and metal) respond to the landscape of the area using different materials.
This self-generated collaboration emerges from their common interest in lines and edges; seen and unseen; natural and manmade. Beyond Edges explores where and how the edges of their practices meet and provides a space for their respective approaches to be explored together. The exhibition includes an accompanying text by Amanda Croft.
Speaking after visiting the exhibition, the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Councillor Richard Holmes said: “I greatly enjoyed my visit to the exhibition, and talking to Andrea, Nicola and Sharon about their artworks to learn more about the creative process behind each piece. Given my farming background I was especially drawn to Sharon’s metal work and how it was inspired by the old hay-shaking techniques which I remember well.
“It’s a fascinating collection of beautiful artworks which reflect our Borough’s landscapes and I’m pleased that we are able to use our gallery spaces to showcase our local artists, giving them a platform to share their creativity with a wider audience.”
Visitors to the exhibition can enjoy a ‘meet and greet day’ on Saturday 23rd October where the artists will do exhibition tours for the public and discuss their work.
This is a free but ticketed event so booking is essential and spaces are limited.
