Keith Sheppard – Art In Glass

4 May @ 4:00 pm - 1 June @ 5:00 pm


The Island Arts Centre are delighted to invite you to the preview for two new exhibitions on Saturday 4 May at 4pm.

KEITH SHEPPARD – Art In Glass | 4 May – 1 June

Following a life changing accident in 2009, resulting in paralysis from the waist down, Keith defied medical opinion by walking seven months later, and beginning his life again as a glass artist. The metal fused vertebrae that enables him to walk has a relevance to the works he now creates. From producing tableware to high-end bespoke pieces, which include sculptures and installations, Keith’s artistry involves infusing glass with metals to create unique, vibrant colourations in interesting forms

ARTEAST – The Magic Brush | 4 May – 18 May

A group of female Chinese artists got together in 2015 with aims to foster excellence and promote appreciation of Chinese culture and art in Northern Ireland. Since 2017 a series of exhibitions and workshops with the theme of Magic Brush have occurred in Lisburn, Belfast and elsewhere. 2024 marks the Chinese New Year of the Dragon, and this exhibition promises to bring powerful, confident, beautiful works celebrating Chinese art’s rich heritage.

No booking necessary. All Welcome!
