New exhibition from Eleanor Wheeler opens in Limavady
Fri, August 03, 2018
Artist Eleanor Wheeler will present her new exhibition at Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre in Limavady this month.
Entitled ‘As the Crow Flies’ it features ceramics and sculptures.
Working from her studio in the Mournes, County Down, Eleanor undertakes international public art commissions and exhibits her work regularly throughout Ireland and the UK.
Having completed a PhD in Architectural Ceramics and Public Art at Northumbria University, Eleanor has specialised in large scale sculptural works since returning to Northern Ireland. This includes commissions at The Gasworks and the Mater Hospital in Belfast and Market Square in Armagh.
In between commissions, Eleanor travels extensively on journeys across the world. These journeys have provided a rich source of inspiration for Eleanor, nurturing her lifelong fascination with animals and birds and their symbolic cultural significance across countries, transcending time and place, irrespective of each region’s geographical borders.
The exhibition continues in the Keady and Broighter Galleries until Friday 31st August.
