‘Wednesday Mornings’   - 

an exhibition of drawings and paintings by North Clare artists Christine Porter and Emma Stewart-Liberty

21st July - 16th August

Official opening Saturday 21st July at 4pm

In 'Wednesday Mornings', on view in The Red Couch Space, two North Clare based artists, Christine Porter and Emma Stewart-Liberty, present drawings and paintings created in the studio space they shared on Wednesday mornings during the course of the last year.

Christine Porter's abstract landscapes exploit the full gamut of colour from succulent, rich saturated pigment to the most subtle tints, tones and shades. The sensuous character of materials such as charcoal, graphite, watercolour crayon and paint, is enhanced by gestured mark-making and the deep space of translucent and opaque layering, with the added excitement of textural effects.

The work shown by Emma Stewart-Liberty results from her lifelong interest in birds and documenting in particular those that visit her garden throughout the year. The series 'Aves' consists of small works on paper and board and uses a muted palette of earth tones.
