Cliona Harmey, Seán Molloy, David Quinn

Level 3 Gallery  |   24th August - 13th October, 2017  |  Tues - Sat 11:00am - 4:00pm

The second part of Solstice Arts Centre’s 2017 visual art programme organised by Curator in Residence Sabina Mac Mahon sees three separate solo shows by three very different artists taking place simultaneously across the gallery’s three exhibition spaces. While there is no set unifying thematic aside from some allusion to Meath’s history, heritage or landscape, when viewed collectively the three shows look, in a general way, at the various ways in which artists adopt methods of abstraction in their work and how abstraction – of information, images and materials – relates to their individual processes of making.
