A group exhibition of paintings, glass artefacts, and sculptures crafted in wood and metal by Andrea Spencer, Nicola Nemec, and Sharon Adams.
An elegant and thought-provoking exhibition in which three woman artists investigate, interrogate and interpret their immediate locale and shared hinterland of open hills and dramatic coastlines in North Antrim.
All three artists respond to the physicality of the land, the impact of man’s intervention on its topography and the effects of changing atmospheric conditions, but they also evoke an essence of place with works that reflect their individual connection to landscape, one tempered by memory, emotional and personal experience, and the potential and constraints of their artistic practice.
Light permeates the work of all three artists – Adams employs it to ‘draw’ shadows from her coiled, sprung sculptures; Nemec’s paintings emulate the way light diffuses through the landscape creating ambiguous space and scale and Andrea Spencer exploits the qualities of light as it passes through her elegant glassworks of natural forms.
The collaboration was first exhibited at Roe Valley Arts Centre in 2021, and includes an accompanying text by Amanda Croft.
Launch 7pm-9pm Thursday 8th September at the Georgian Gallery, Ards Arts Centre.
The Exhibition will run from Thursday 8th September to Saturday 22nd October.
