Sec­ond solo ex­hi­bi­tion for tal­ented Bri­die

Mid Louth Independent - - NEWS -

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.
