Second solo exhibition for talented Bridie
THERE may be an art to placing a rugby ball graceully through the centre of the posts, but the local club will be hosting some genuine art next week!
Bettystown artist Bridie Farrell will be holding her second solo exhibition there, opening on Friday October 12th at 8pm in Boyne Rugby Club. This collection has already been exhibited in association with Sunbeam House in the Arklow Gallery last March and will show in Drogheda for two days.
Bridie is a visual artist based in East Meath and her medium is mainly acrylic and her style abstract.
She is well-known far and wide for her travels in aid of charity - not only has the 68-year-old run the New York, Paris and Dublin marathons, but has also climbed the Tigers Head and Table Mountain in South Africa, walked in the Sini, Sahara and Gobi deserts, and run the Camino.
Born Bridie Carroll in the Green Lane, Drogheda, this gregarious granny left the Presentation School in Fair Street at age 13. She married husband Paddy in 1969, and has raised money for Crumlin, Beaumont, Rehab, The Irish Wheelchair Association, CF and Enable Ireland over the past 30 years.
And six years ago, this talented lady received her BA in Fine Art, eight years after she first started studying. Since graduation she has exhibited in Drogheda with her first solo exhibition Brigantia and now her second, Aeternum. All are welcome to come and visit the exhibition. Refreshments will be available.
