|Tracy Hanna: Holes|
|An exhibition of new work by Tracy Hanna opened Saturday 15 November, the exhibition opening took the form of an artist's talk.|
Tracy Hanna works primarily with video projection to create sculptural objects and environments.
Often, the artist presents video footage that captures the textural and tactile qualities of objects and materials, thus bringing a pronounced facet of their physicality into the exhibition space in order to utilise digital video as sculptural material.
Tracy Hanna was born in Dublin and is based in Rotterdam. Over the past number of years she has assembled a body of work that has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in Ireland and the UK.
|Grinding Out Transcendence|
|An exhibition of photographs by members of Mid-Louth Camera Club in collaboration with artist Jackie Nickerson will open at the end of November. |
At the start of the summer of 2012, this Arts Service of Louth County Council invited the Mid-Louth Camera Club to work with lens-based artist, Jackie Nickerson, in documenting that year’s Ardee Baroque.
Grinding out Transcendence is the result of this collaboration between one of Ireland’s foremost fine-art photographers and one of Ireland’s most innovative and successful rural-based photographic societies.
The exhibition opens from Saturday 29 November and continues until January 2015.
