Siobhan McDonald – A Change in the Signal – Crystalline, until Nov 25th
Siobhan McDonald – A Change in the Signal – Crystalline, until Nov 25th‘My work is about the spirit of discovery of what is still unknown to science, going beyond the edge of the universe and exploring the layers that go back to our origins.’

Highlanes Gallery is delighted to present a new exhibition by the artist Siobhan McDonald, first shown in Paris, in the Centre Culturel Irlandais, earlier this year.

Artist Siobhan McDonald reflects on the creative processes and formative energies in nature contained within atmospheres, molecules, sounds and seeds. Positioning her work within geological history, Crystalline explores our understanding of time and our relationship with a continually changing environment. The themes that animate Crystalline—the deep history of materials and their changing states and the fragility of bodies and landforms exposed to the elements continue through the exhibition.

Art in Mind: Explore the Interplay between the arts and science
Art in Mind: Explore the Interplay between the arts and scienceArt seems to impact us all differently.
But how does it do that?

How does art impact our minds?
Can it influence our mental state? And does science affect the process of art making?

Research has shown that art can impact our minds, influence our mental state and even improve the way we learn. There is also evidence that scientific discoveries have influenced art making throughout history.

With a fascinating panel of artists, psychologists and neuroscientists, live experiments and lots of conversation, this event will highlight the connections between science and art, and will give you a deeper appreciation of the value of creativity on our minds. Contributors include Daniel Glaser, Neuroscientist and Director, Science Gallery London, Clara Rose, Music Therapist, Singer/Songwriter; the event will be hosted by Scientist and Artist, Niamh Shaw.

Highlanes Gallery on tour - Theresa Nanigian at Limerick City Gallery of Art
Highlanes Gallery on tour - Theresa Nanigian at Limerick City Gallery of Artjust a bit extraordinary is a national tour of three distinct exhibitions by artist Theresa Nanigian who creates portraits of contemporary Western life. In her work Nanigian also uses the analytical tools of other disciplines such as sociology, economics, psychology and logic to explore expressions of identity across the human experience.

The second chapter of the exhibition master of my universe which opens at Limerick City Gallery of Art on Friday 3rd November, considers the middle developmental stage of adulthood often preoccupied with earning a living. Unusually Nanigian chooses to explore this stage by documenting the vendors on the boardwalk of Venice Beach, California. The guardians of this ‘sidewalk circus’ are a diverse range of nationalities, ages, socioeconomic status and personal histories, who display an equally quirky spectrum of merchandise, entertainment and personal philosophy. master of my universe draws on work from Nanigian’s California residency including text, photography, soundscapes and a ‘merchandise museum’.
