"A Bit Of Whimsy" 

On Friday, 5th July “ A BIT OF WHIMSY” comes to the Solas Art Gallery in Ballinamore.  This exhibition is a collection of new works by artist Sandra Vernon who has been drawing and painting around Leitrim and the North West for over 25 years. Her work can be seen in different places , some unexpected, as well as appearing in Leitrim`s annual publication the “ Leitrim Guardian”, a fact of which she is immensely proud. Having worked in many different mediums;  paper; paint; clay; and on many different surfaces, from walls to glass, for this exhibition Sandra has returned to her first love, drawing. With a few pencil drawings, some more with fine coloured pens, the main body of work is in pen and Ink in shades of grey and black.. Like many artists, Sandra likes to push the limits of what is possible within her chosen art form, in this case, just how fine a pen can she use.

The Exhibition will open at 7.30 pm on Fri 5th July, and will be launched by Gerry Faughnan, President , Chamber of Commerce, Carrick on Shannon.  They have been friends since Gerry was president of the Junior Chamber and Sandra was involved with the Old Barrel Store Arts and Craft Co-op in the 80`s, and from then to now Gerry  has always been most supportive of the arts in all its forms. The exhibition will be open until Sat 27th July, the Gallery is above the Four Seasons Garden Centre in Ballinamore, open mon-sat; 10-6pm.  For any more information or on how to become a member please contact Gail or Ben at 071 9644210, visit or website www.solasart.ie or become our friend on facebook
