Monday 30th January - Sunday 12th February 2017
Signal Arts Centre is delighted to be exhibiting works by the artist Lelia Henry.
Lelia Henry is an artist originally from Athlone. She studied art at IADT and NCAD before travelling to Florence, to study Old Master drawing techniques. Her work is firmly grounded in the traditional genres of landscape, and the figure, and has been selected for the Royal Hibernian Academy Annual Exhibition (2016, 2015) and the Royal Ulster Academy Annual Exhibition (2015). She has also exhibited nationally in a number of group shows and selected open submission exhibitions.
My drawings are intuitive, a direct response to the landscape around me. My aim is neither photo-realism nor loose interpretation, but to emphasise glimpses of the everyday in terms of light, shade, and texture. My process involves building up tones gradually, adding layer upon layer, creating texture on the surface. I try to covey the essence and atmosphere of a place, while maintaining a sense of depth.

Opening Reception: Sunday 5th February 3 pm - 5pm With guest Una Sealy (Judge of Irish Painter of the Year TV programme)
