"Interpretation of Seamus Heaney's Field Work" now at Verbal Arts Centre, Derry

For anyone who missed out on my exhibition at the Bellaghy Bawn or for those who'd like to experience it all over again it is currently in situ at the Verbal Arts Centre, Derry until the end of August. The show opened officially on the 10th June with a little preview during which Roberta Bacic and myself gave short speech about both this particular body of work and also my ongoing arpillera pieces. I had the great honour to meet someone who had strong personal connections with a particular figure in Heaney's poetry, I found this to be a rather humbling experience as I listened to memories and emotions about the events and subsequent work that has inspired me to such a great extent. 

Opening times for the Verbal Arts Centre are 9am - 5.30pm, Monday to Thursday and 9am - 4pm Friday. The exhibition will be running throughout the summer, ending sometime around late August 2010.
