Signal Arts Centre is delighted to be exhibiting works by Filia Clowne and Greg Murray.

'When Rose, a circus girl, has her heart broken by a second clown, she decides to close her heart to broken relationships forever and marry her true self.

She buys a small second-hand photo frame, shaped like a sunflower for her 33rd birthday and chooses to fall in love with her own life, for better or for worse.

That very week, the doorway to adventure swings open and she meets Boris, an exciting stranger to fill the frame of the Sunflower. His giant heart will lead her on a journey to knowing the true meaning of romantic love at its most beautiful and tragic - and finally to the realisation of what a profound decision she had made by committing to her own life at 33 and the gravity of the choice it will ultimately ask of her.'

My first visual arts exhibition will be inspired by this story, a one-woman show I am writing for Rose Lawless Cabaret (which will be performed for the first time in this year's Yarn festival).

I am very much looking forward to my first exhibition with Signal - There might even be a little gig by Rose at the opening!

Opening Reception: Sunday 21st August from 2 - 4 pm

We would love to see you there!
