Beauty of the coastline on show at the Pigyard Gallery

By Esther Hayden

Six Wexford based artists are currently exhibiting their work in the Pigyard Gallery.

The exhibition by members of Harmonics opened last Thursday with a large crowd in attendance. Guest speaker on the night was Mairead Stafford of Ballyelland Pottery and chairperson of the Wexford Craft Trail.

Now in it's sixth year this intriguing collective of Wexford-based artists - Ann Duggan, Terry Dunne, Christine Mooney, Tess Reynolds, Patricia Robinson, Phil Stewart, Gilly Thomas and Mary Wallace - meet together in each other's houses once a month to explore concepts for new work. Ideas are teased out over good coffee, real tea and homebaking. Recipes are exchanged as readily as thoughts and opinions on the contemporary art scene, nationally and internationally.

The exhibition focuses on the Irish coastline and will showcase various different styles and media.

In addition to the more traditional paintings there will also be 3D textile sculptures and the inclusion of pure gold leaf.

The exhibition runs at the Pigyard Gallery until July 21.
