Overland and Borders exhibition opens at Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre
Thu, May 05, 2022
‘Overland and Borders’, a new exhibition by Diane Henshaw, will be on display in Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre in Limavady until May 28th.
The artist’s abstract work is known for its paired down lines and formulated composition, and visitors to the exhibition can enjoy a series of works created during lockdown, along with a small selection of large drawings about people, place, memory, experience, and history.
Originally from Islandmagee in County Antrim, Henshaw practised at Queen Street Studios, Belfast for just under a decade, before moving to Tempo in Fermanagh where she has been based for 19 years.
Over the past three decades, she has exhibited throughout the world in Europe, North America, Asia and Indonesia. Most recently, she has curated online studio visits and an international touring expo for the Drawing Box during lockdown. Diane has also exhibited virtually with the Sasse Museum in California in a group show curated by Maurice Quillinan entitled, Irish Art.
The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Councillor Richard Holmes, stated:
“It is a real privilege to bring Diane’s fantastic work to one of our Arts Centres and I hope as many people as possible enjoy the opportunity to visit ‘Overlands and Borders’ for themselves.”
