New pop-up art exhibition

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS - By MYLES BUCHANAN

KATHRINA Shine’s new 20/20 Vi­sion Exhibition will re­main on show un­til Au­gust 22.

The exhibition is a mix of paint­ings, new ink works, limited edi­tion Gi­clée prints, sculp­tures, art fashion and home decor and is lo­cated at 57 Main Street, Wicklow town.

Cllr Irene Win­ters, the Cathaoir­leach of Wicklow County Coun­cil, of­fi­cially opened the exhibition.

‘I have been re­ceiv­ing great feed­back from peo­ple. They seem to be par­tic­u­larly en­joy­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence of colour.

‘I think some vis­i­tors to the gallery are en­joy­ing a new un­der­stand­ing of ab­stract art. There is a pur­pose be­hind each ex­hibit and they all have a story be­hind them,’ said Kathrina.

Her paint­ings are al­ready part of var­i­ous pri­vate col­lec­tions in­ter­na­tion­ally and of the OPW’s Na­tional Col­lec­tion.

This is also her first col­lec­tion to be trans­formed into a cloth­ing and home decor line, in­clud­ing ev­ery­thing from hand­bags and t-shirts to dresses.

‘It’s about ev­ery­one hav­ing ac­cess to art,’ ex­plains Kathrina. ‘Ev­ery­day items like mugs and cush­ions can now be­come a piece of art.’

Kathrina is the daugh­ter of Fin­barr and Breeda Shine, who es­tab­lished Shine’s Phar­macy in 1962 hav­ing made Wicklow town their home.

The exhibition re­mains open to the pub­lic from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, in­clud­ing Satur­days and Sundays. Visit www.kathri­nashine.ie to view Kathrina’s work.
