The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has met with Cushendun-based artist Katy English to view her new exhibition at Flowerfield Arts Centre.
The Warp and Weft collection explores the fragile threads which hold our world together. Through a series of large-scale atmospheric drawings, Katy reflects on the sense of loss of control and isolation felt by many during the pandemic as well as capturing the sense of fragility of the natural world.
Speaking afterwards, Councillor Richard Holmes said: “Flowerfield Arts Centre offers a beautiful exhibiting space, and I’m delighted to see pieces created by one of our Borough’s renowed artists on display. I greatly enjoyed my guided tour with Katy and finding out more about her work and influences.”
During his visit, the Mayor was also able to view Susan Mannion’s exhibition ‘Beyond Darkness’. Like Katy, Susan is influenced by landscape and patterns in nature, distilling a sense of place, time and memory.
‘The Warp and the Weft’ and ‘Beyond Darkness’ are open to the public until Saturday 30th October.
A series of accompanying creative learning activities for both children and adults are available alongside the exhibitions. Please visit www.flowerfield.org for further details.
