Sarah Longley - Art Exhibition
The Steadings Gallery will be hosting an exhibition featuring the work of Sarah Longley, a local artist whose work is about responding to her surroundings, from 1-11 August.
Born and raised in Belfast and now living in Scotland, Sarah has exhibited in many locations including the Peppercanister Gallery (Dublin), Mullan Gallery (Belfast) and the Royal Scottish Academy (Edinburgh) to name but a few.
Sarah says: "My recent work has been inspired by my new home in the West Highlands and I've been particularly drawn to the salt-marsh close to our home and the hill behind (Angel Hill) which provides an excellent promontory for sketching.
I have also long been obsessed with the figure. I enjoy the challenges involved in expressing a physical and emotional presence while attempting to give an honest representation of the fall of light on the body"
According to Aidan Dunne in the Irish Times: "The strength of her work rests not only on her assiduous attention to the demands of each area of subject matter, but also, very much, on the consistency of her dark-edged vision."
