The Blackwater Valley Makers are delighted to announce the opening of their new visiting exhibition by Lynn Kirkham. Renowned Artist and Sculptor Lynn Kirkham has announced details of her upcoming exhibition ‘Myself & Other Animals’ which is set to take place at The Blackwater Valley Makers Arts Centre in Fermoy from July 8th until August 31st.
The exhibition includes some unique animal inspired works with each piece carefully hand made from nature and then moulded to preserve the work. The detailing is truly remarkable and well worth a visit.
Lynn Kirkham is a Master Basketmaker, Multi-Media Artist and Sculptor. Working mainly to commission, her public sculptures have become popular landmark pieces. No stranger to the area, her work is very well known by the public locally and visitors alike. Her work ‘Bo Bainne’ consisting of five cow sculptures grazing at the roundabout in Fermoy, was commissioned by Teagasc for Moorepark Research Centre in 2015.
Suzanne O’Sullivan, Events Coordinator, Blackwater Valley Makers Arts Centre, commented “We are delighted to have the opportunity to exhibit Lynn's work here at Blackwater Valley Makers Gallery. There is huge interest and excitement in the local arts community to see Lynn’s latest work. The wider community of Fermoy and its hinterlands, many with just a passing interest in art, know Lynn’s work well and we are sure it will create a stir of attraction. “
The opening night of the exhibition “Myself & Other Animals” takes place on Friday, July 8th at 6-8pm. Entry is free and all are welcome. Blackwater Valley Makers are open from Monday to Saturday 10am-6pm.
