Based primarily in the Burren since 2013, painter Mollie Douthit brings a new body of work, ‘Acts of Patience’ to The Courthouse Gallery in Ennistymon this September.
Douthit exhibits new drawings, watercolours and oil paintings, each on an intimate scale. Made in Ireland and North Dakota, the work spans the artist’s life here and at home. A series of studies of a favourite chair from her Burren studio appears in various guises, draped with objects belonging to close friends, while her beloved dog Ted is captured in a succession of nimble drawings of eloquent economy.
I am delighted to be part of the Burren College of art faculty this academic year as the Painting and Drawing Fellow. I earned my MFA here, and am enjoying everything this special location has to offer.
Work from the past six months will be exhibited at the Staff Club at NUI Galway for the duration of the fall semester Staff Club, Quadrangle, NUI Galway | Mon – Fri: 9am – 4pm until January 20, 2017
Engagement is an ongoing project through which artists from the wider art community in Ireland and artists from KCAT Studio, Callan have agreed to work together over a period of years, building relationships that take many forms, but all of them creative.
