Cultúrlann Sweeney presents ‘’ Golden Moments, Silver Clouds’’ by visual artist Michelle Whelan Kennedy. In this series of paintings Michelle captures the essence of living joyfully in beautiful seascapes that are shaped by nature, the ever changing sky and its unfolding character around her. The exploration of light takes many shapes in her work including her depiction of its energy in people and place and in the physical light of the west of Ireland.
Michelle lives in Galway and Clare and has studied art up to second level and has cultivated her skills personally and in community through developing art groups (Spirit art group). She is also a trained psychotherapist and uses art processes in her art therapy work (www.heart 2heart.ie). She has previously exhibited in Culturlann Sweeny, Dublin (People’s Art), Galway (Maree Community Centre, Kilcornan) . The exhibition runs from the 11th of May – 1st of June, with an official launch with the artist present taking place on Saturday the 26th of May at 7 pm at Cultúrlann Sweeney.
