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.

Children's Mid-Term Workshops/ Wed 1 and Fri 3 November
ChildrenArtist and facilitator Yvonne Byrne, and facilitator Julie Duhy, lead two Mid-Term Children's Workshops, exploring two of the current exhibitions, A Change in the Signal - Crystalline by Siobhan McDonald, and the 63rd Texaco Children's Art Exhibition.

Post-Halloween, these workshops are for children aged 5 - 13yrs, and charged at €6 per child, with booking essential.
Workshops at the gallery are process-based and explore basic concepts and ideas with children as they are looking. The emphasis is placed on understanding the ideas surrounding the objects. Making objects forms part of that process but is not the only goal of the workshop.
