Uisce

Garter Lane Arts Centre is delighted to present Uisce, a group exhibition of seascapes by eight Irish artists- David Smith, Carol Kennedy, Verona Stellet, Blawnin Clancy, Barry Edwards, Maria Dowling, Cathy Walsh and Rachel Ryan. This exhibition presents seascapes which document a series of real and imagined coastlines and water scenes, through a variety of media including painting, drawing and installation.

Uisce explores the sea and the coast as a source of creative inspiration and a wider metaphor for the ebb and flow which we experience in our lives and which the poet Pablo Naruda presents in his poem, It is Born (Nace):

Here I came to the very edge
where nothing at all needs saying,
everything is absorbed through weather and the sea,
and the moon swam back.
its rays all silvered,
and time and time again, the darkness would be broken
by the crash of a wave,
and every day on the balcony of the sea,
wings open, fire is born,
and everything is blue again like morning.

Admission free and all are welcome. Free guided tours for primary, post primary and third level student groups, adult learners and community groups are available- for bookings, contact gallery@garterlane.ie
