DECADES

We are delighted to invite you to the opening of Decades, an exhibition of work by the artists  Camilla Fanning and Sinéad Barrett at  Gallery Asna, Clonakilty Arts Centre.
The exhibition opens on Saturday July 2nd @ 5:30 pm and runs until Saturday July 23rd.

Sinéad Barrett

Barrett is looking at the environment around us, exploring  a sense of place while  questioning both familiar and liminal spaces in particular forests and woodlands. According to Barrett “There is something calming in the swirling wind , the whispering leaves and rustling branches. The trees have their own language”. 

Camila Fanning

Fanning observes powerful associations, and embodied memories, in the places we know and move through.  Her work is about Place and is a response to both what is there and the shared hidden history within places and landscapes.
