Printmaking exhibition at Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre

Wed, October 02, 2019

Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre is delighted to welcome Anushiya Sundaralingam and her exhibition ‘Marankal’ to Limavady from Saturday 19th October.

Originally from Sri Lanka, Anushiya has been based in Northern Ireland for over 20 years, having completed her degree in Fine and Applied Arts in Belfast School of Art.

The artist has exhibited her work nationally and internationally and has worked as an arts facilitator for numerous public organisations including The Ulster Museum.

Anushiya trained as a printmaker but now works in both two and three dimensions, primarily using mixed media.

The core of her practice is based around experimenting with materials, approaches and subject matter with a heavy focus on how the natural and cultural environment shape our sense of self and place. 

Her work is in many prestigious collections including the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Queen’s University, The Open University Ireland and Northern Bank.

A launch event will take place from 1pm -4pm on Saturday 19th October and everyone is welcome to attend. Accompanying the exhibition, Anushiya will provide a free talk based on her practice on Friday 25th October from 2pm-3pm along with a series of print workshops for children and adults. On Saturday 26th October from 12noon – 3pm, children aged 7+ have the opportunity to attend a free natured inspired workshop and in turn create a ‘tree of nature’.

Workshops for adults include ‘Drypoint Printmaking’ on Saturday 2nd November from 10am-4pm at a cost of £30. Dry Point is one of the most direct of the intaligo printing techniques, with lines being scratched directly onto plastic with a sharp tool, ink applied and then a print is taken.

A Monotype print making workshop will take place on Saturday 9th November from 10am to 4pm. Monotype printing is known as the most painterly method of printing techniques, with each print being unique. The workshop will cost £30.

To book any of the workshops please call 028 776 0650 or visit

The Marankal exhibition will continue in Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre until Saturday 16th November.

Artist Anushiya Sundaralingam will present her exhibition ‘Marankal’ at Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre from Saturday 19th October.
