Exhibition by Michelle Whelan Kennedy
A little about the Artist:

Michelle is an artist and psychotherapist who lives in Galway and Clare. She studied art up to second level and has cultivated her skills personally and in community through developing art groups (Spirit art group) and art therapy (www.heart 2heart.ie) through her work. Michelle has previously exhibited in Culturlann Sweeny, Dublin (People’s Art), Galway (Maree Community Centre, Kilcornan)


This exhibition is a celebration of the light in Michelle’s life. This light takes many shapes in her work. Her light is in place, people and movement. In living in the west of Ireland, Michelle captures the essence of living joyfully in beautiful seascapes that are shaped by nature, the ever changing sky and its unfolding character around her. The energy of this light flows in her work. She translates the magic of these moments of life and nature in sparkle and colour. This exhibition marks an important time in her life. She pauses to reflect where this journey takes her and awakens to the beautiful moments she has experienced and the surprise in the ordinary day being experienced again and again with new and wondrous eyes. Everyday scenes take on new enchanting qualities as the extraordinary beauty of the Atlantic flows through her work
