An exciting art exhibition entitled ‘Sirens, Greeks and Tangled Hierarchies’ will be held in the coming weeks at Longford’s Backstage Theatre.

The event, which includes a showcase of the wonderful and inspiring works of a group of Galway artists, will be held on February 7 next at the theatre’s Autrim Gallery, and proceedings are expected to kick off at 8pm. The exhibition will be officially opened by renowned north Longford poet and Granard native Noel Monaghan - Editor of Window’s Publications Anthology - and Longford Arts Officer, Fergus Kennedy.

The pleasant artspace at the Atrium Gallery will provide the backdrop to the artwork which is being showcased by Anne Harkin-Petersen,Tuam and Ruth Cadden, Spiddal.

Both of these artists were contributors to the Windows Publications Anthology which was a celebration of 20 years of arts promotion.

Anne Petersen’s work is in the abstract expressionist genre with an emphasis on a use of colour and provides thought provoking titles for her paintings. Tangled Hierarchies’ is the title for Anne’s body of work with particular attention given to rich colour combinations that themselves seem to enquire of the atmosphere around them.

Ruth Cadden’s vast body of work is a variety of portrait, animal and landscape, with sorrowful sirens and a few frisky Greek bulls thrown in for good measure.

Both artists will be in the gallery on the night of this much anticipated exhibition and look forward to discussing their work in more detail with those in attendance.
