Surface: Maria Garry Official Opening: Saturday 2nd March, 8pm Surface exploration along the North Mayo coastline is a recurring theme in Maria Garry’s work. She sees herself as “the quiet observer and collector, revisiting areas and recording subtle changes, which Nature reveals over time”. Close examination of delicate textures and layers, which emerge, erode, invade and invite provide exciting starting points for a series of mixed media investigations. Runs until 3rd May. Free admission. All welcome.
transgress: Ian Wieczorek Official Opening: Thursday 7th March, 8pm Ian Wieczorek's latest show explores the phenomenon of borders, and reflects both current socio-political events and a continuing narrative: the border as a physical barrier, its implications and its porosity.

Wieczorek has exhibited widely both in Ireland and internationally, including EVA International, RHA Annual Exhibition, Claremorris Open Exhibition and recent shows in Austria, Sweden and Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris. Runs until 3rd May. Free admission. All welcome.
