Artists Kira O’Brien and Stephanie Mendel are hosting an exhibition at the Mad Fish Restaurant in Cronin’s Pub, Crosshaven, Co. Cork. Opening on Wednesday, May 11th at 8pm the show is a mix of ceramics and nature based paintings.
Dublin born Kira, is based in Crosshaven, where she works from her home studio. She studied in Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork currently teaches part time adult education ceramic classes in the Be Creative Centre, Carrigaline. Her pieces are decorated in a sgraffitto, a ceramic drawing technique, where sculptural figures sit on teacups, bowls, jugs or lids. Often the figures are alone, or part of conversation with a group suggesting a story is taking place. Kira’s work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally including Switzerland and Montana and is held in private collections throughout the world.
Stephanie Mendel paints from a studio in her home in Myrtleville, Co. Cork. A native of New Mexico she is both intrigued and enchanted by nature, colour and texture, for which she finds her outlet in paintings of flowers, trees and other natural objects. Working primarily in acrylics and oils she brings a bright and often starkly contrasting view of her subjects, always rich in colour and deep in perspective and ambiguity. Stephanie’s artwork has been featured in a number of exhibitions and in March 2013 she presented her work, solo at the NSC Campus in Cork.
The exhibition will be open daily and runs from May 11 until June 29
Photographer and marine biologist, Mick Mackey returns to Cronin’s Pub and the Mad Fish Restaurant, Crosshaven this month with his photographic exhibition and study ‘Shots from a Dark Light; 900 Days on Bird Island, South Georgia’.
This striking collection of photographs is his first solo exhibition in over 5 years and was premiered at Cork’s Vision Centre in 2013. The dramatic collection captures not only the harsh Antarctic conditions that constantly confront the animals that inhabit this vast and lonely island but also the vivid beauty of its unspoilt and untouched environment.
Mackey’s 30 month trip to the Antartic was not for the fainthearted. In winter, temperatures drop to -10C, and the small team of biologists are completely isolated from the outside world for long periods. However, this is one of the most biologically dense areas on earth; it is estimated that there is a bird or seal for every 1.5m² of the 400 hectare island.
“The unique opportunity to work closely with such an absorbing and attractive group of animals over such a long period, allowed me to collate one of the most comprehensive photographic collections ever to be made in the polar environment” says Mackey.
The photographs featured in this compelling exhibition include wandering Albatross and their chicks, Antarctic Fur Seals, Macaroni Penguins and many more of the Island’s charismatic and hardy creatures.
‘Shots from a Dark Light; 900 Days on Bird Island, South Georgia’ will open in Cronin’s Pub on Wednesday 19th March at 8pm. All are welcome to attend. The exhibition will be open to the public daily and runs until May 11th.
