Monday 5th March - Sunday 18th March 2018

Signal Arts Centre is delighted to be exhibiting works by the Erika Tyner.

Erika is an artist and photographer working from a studio in County Wicklow. Central to her work is the sense that society is progressing technologically at such a speed that we are leaving our folk knowledge and heritage behind. The idea that progress is linear and that we become more knowledgeable and in control of our fate with time could be a myth.

'Sun Rising - The Power of the Stones' celebrates our precious Megalithic Art in the Boyne Valley. These mounds were not just the burial sites of our ancestors, but earlier places of solar alignment and ritual.

They were built at the time of an organised agricultural society whose peoples possessed engineering, astronomy, and artistic skills. Our forefathers valued their life, their light, their harvest, and as they tried to make sense of this world, they etched what they saw on stone - the only material they had that would last.

Opening Reception: Sunday 11th March from 3 - 5 pm

All Welcome!
