Flowerfield Arts Centre in Portstewart welcomes an exhibition of paintings by Armoy based artist Nicola Nemec from September 8th – 29th.
The ‘Quiet Places’ exhibition includes a body of work created while undertaking a residency on the remote Achill Island in County Mayo. Conceived over a two year period, the exhibition is the artist’s response to working in this unique place, combined with her observation of the shifting climate, light and atmosphere of the North Antrim landscape where she lives.
Recurring themes include the contrast between man-made and natural forms, harbours, boglands, mountains and seascapes.
Nicola creates intense, atmospheric paintings which are rich in hue, reflecting the colours of the seasonal landscape, and texture.
Her work has been exhibited extensively across the UK and Ireland and exists in many private and public collections.
Everyone is welcome to come along to the exhibition launch on Saturday 8th September from 2pm-3.30pm. A wine reception and refreshments will be provided.
Nicola will also be facilitating a talk based on her exhibition and creative practice on Thursday 20th September at 2pm. Admission is free.
