Within these Walls an exhibition of paintings by Mary St. Leger will open on Saturday 4th July @ 7.30pm.  All are welcome. 

Mary completed her B.A in limerick school of art and design in 1996, her studio was beside that of the artist in residence Jack O Donovan who inspired much of her early work. A year later she completed her Masters in the University of Central England.  Mary’s work measures whimsy within a darkness, evoking feelings deep inside that are both disturbing and  unsettling.  This sense of unease floats around the edges of near isolation culminating into an uneasy calm.

  All are welcome. 

Friday 21st August @ 8pm
