New show at AVA

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

A SOLO ex­hi­bi­tion by artist Ni­cola Ri­ley opened in the Ark­low Vis­ual Arts Gallery yes­ter­day.

A lo­cal artist, Ni­cola works in a va­ri­ety of me­dia, in­clud­ing ce­ram­ics and tex­tiles. Her de­signs are drawn straight on to fab­ric or clay. Fol­low­ing this, lay­ers of em­broi­dery stitches or glazes are added to bring colour and a sense of whimsy to the work.

Ni­cola cre­ates her art un­der the guid­ance of art teacher Fiona O’Hara at Bal­lyraine and Sun­beam House. This will be her sec­ond solo show.

The ex­hi­bi­tion con­tin­ues at the Ark­low Vis­ual Arts Gallery un­til Fri­day, Septem­ber 13. All are wel­come. Ark­low Vis­ual Arts Gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mon­day to Fri­day.

Em­broi­dery by Ni­cola Ri­ley.
